"Our office has designed a number of projects where The Swinton Group has been involved as fundraising counsel. I’ve seen first-hand how Kim builds trusting, productive relationships with organizational leaders, and how her fundraising plans ultimately result in generous giving and successful projects that benefit their communities!"

- Jeanne Gang,
Architect and Founding Principal

and Partner of Studio Gang

After 30 years as a fundraising leader at many important nonprofit institutions, Principal Kim Swinton founded The Swinton Group (TSG) as a premier consulting firm working exclusively with nonprofit organizations and their leadership. With a track record of success, Swinton brings a front-line understanding of nonprofit organizations and philanthropy, and the opportunities and challenges facing today’s nonprofits.

Over three decades, Swinton benefited from working directly with many of the nation’s best-known fundraising firms, giving her an in-depth, firsthand understanding of a wide range of approaches and allowing TSG to develop its own streamlined, strategic, and proactive methodology. TSG fundraising plans and counsel are customized specifically for your organization and designed for maximum effectiveness. TSG focuses on the depth and quality of the client engagement, and not on the number of clients.

As a full-service firm, TSG provides counsel in all areas relating to capital and annual fundraising efforts, including feasibility, planning, positioning, and implementation. We value building productive and trusting relationships with your executive, trustee, and fundraising leadership.
