Debbie Swanson | SRC Executive Director
Debbie Swanson considers herself a “semi-native” Colorado Springs resident, having spent only her first eight years elsewhere. A graduate of Colorado College and former paralegal, she has been in the nonprofit industry for over 25 years in a variety of positions, most recently from the Girl Scouts of Colorado as their Fund Development Manager of the Pikes Peak Region. With fundraising her expertise, she has attained her CFRE (Certified Fundraising Executive) designation, the industry’s recognition of highest ethical standards, notable successful experience, and best practices in fundraising. She is highly connected in the community with volunteer roles with the Southern Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Colorado College which she will leverage in her role as Executive Director of the Senior Resource Council. She has been an avid runner and “knows Pikes Peak intimately well,” but now reserves most of her spare time hiking and walking her dog, Avery. She and her husband and elderly mother-in-law live north of downtown Colorado Springs.
