Matt Connell, CFRE believes in connecting people to information and resources and is passionate about bringing understanding and access closer to being in reach. This passion has led him to a career in the nonprofit sector where he has honed his talents as an educator, fundraiser, researcher, and analyst. Matt is a Senior Instructor for Blackbaud where he helps to lead and develop their team of instructors in the delivery of training for nonprofit professionals.

When he’s not working with nonprofit organizations or the Blackbaud team, Matt is probably spending time with his dog Pete. He also enjoys cycling and home-brewing, another passion Matt occasionally enjoys ‘researching.’
