TOP CONSULTANT TO OFFER FUNDRAISING TRAINING TO NON-PROFITS
London (January, 2008) - Specializing in major gift, capital campaigns and planned giving, Darryl Swain has announced the launch of the EXCEL Consulting Group's training programs.
Through EXCEL’s fundraising division, the company will be providing training and leadership services for non-profit organizations wanting to fundraise for Major Gifts, Capital Campaigns and Planned Giving.
“Time and time again I have encountered client’s and colleagues looking for good training opportunities that they just cannot find anywhere”, says Swain. “Non-profits have no other recourse except to turn to very expensive consulting firms. This company provides an alternative for non-profits so that they can learn to do for themselves what consultants do, but at a fraction of the cost.”
EXCEL’s primary service will be providing training services to organizations and individuals in the non-profit industry.
“We believe in the old proverb ‘Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.’”, says Swain. “Knowledge needs to be shared, not rented, if non-profits are going to have long-term success. That is EXCEL’s goal, to share knowledge for sustainability.”
Swain, a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE), is one of only 600 CFREs available in Canada and one of 5,000 in the world. He is also nearing the completion of his Executive MBA, to enhance his specialties in serving the non-profit community.
With a background in the health care industry and universities, Swain has already successfully managed projects exceeding $40 Million for not-for-profit organizations. EXCEL Consulting Group is ready to teach others to do the same through its innovative training services, which will be available early in 2008.
