Lynn O’Connell

In mid-June, Lynn O’Connell will be in town to teach her popular series of nonprofit administration classes. If you are working on your nonprofit certificate or thinking about breaking into the field, her classes are not to be missed!

Lynn is the director of Computer Core, a nonprofit in the DC area. Over the years, she has worked for several nonprofits, including a national health care grant making organization, and has been the president of the Alexandria Virginia chapter of Volunteer America. She holds a certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University as well as a Master’s in Philanthropy from Indiana University.

Lynn is also a passionate advocate for adult education and taught her first class 21 years ago (a 4-hour grantwriting class) to help her get over a fear of public speaking. Now, she offers more than 15 courses designed for professionals in the nonprofit or small business worlds, ranging from starting a NPO to government bids and contracts.
