Peter G. Remington

President, Michigan Education Excellence Foundation

Peter G. Remington created The Remington Group in 1995 as a full-service consulting firm in order to provide strategic partnerships and expertise in various philanthropic areas. Remington also recognized the need for a new type of fundraising organization that would be local in proximity and national in scope. The firm he envisioned would combine the agility, contacts and prospect knowledge of the local firm with the expertise, range of services and organizational resources offered by the traditional national firm. The resulting organization brings together many years of successful fundraising experience, exceptional capacity to help clients learn and implement fundraising practice and an unequalled access to contacts in the corporate, foundation and individual donor communities on a regional and national basis.

Over the years, the firm has assisted its clients in raising over $4 billion. Clients range from

health care, human service organizations, universities, cultural and arts organizations, a major

education and scholarship initiative promoted by the Governor of Michigan, and civic projects and events such as the Final Four and the Frozen Four at Ford Field and Detroit’s Tri-Centennial, to name a few. On the national level, clients have included the MLK Memorial in Washington, DC, Project Lead the Way, Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation, Worldwide Shelters, and the Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute at West Virginia University.

Remington, an industry leader celebrating close 50 years of philanthropy related experience,

served in several key leadership positions prior to creating The Remington Group. His

experience includes tenure as the Vice President of External Relations at the University of

Detroit, Chief Development Officer with The Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Unit Director for the United Foundation. Peter is recognized throughout the country not only for his rare ability to take traditional fundraising practices and mold them into creative and customized strategies, but also for his extreme passion for philanthropy and his fundamental desire to deliver superiorn service to his clients. Remington is known for both his skill as a fundraising professional as well as his true commitment to the community.

Over the years, Peter has served on more than 40 Boards and Commissions, including the

Chairman of Neighborhood Housing Organization as well as personally participated in many

efforts to continue the advancement for the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan, especially its children. Peter also serves as President of the Michigan Education Excellence Foundation.
