Dan’s passion for sports, coaching, schools, and the community are all coming together as he joins the Fundraising University family! Dan is excited to bring the Fundraising University mission to the metro-Atlanta area and he is driven to enable coaches, teams, and groups to “Dream Big, Raise More, Work Less”. Dan’s vision is to utilize Fundraising University’s Blitz system to help teams take fundraising to the next level.
Dan’s love for sports and competition came at a young age from his parents. Playing youth sports and following local high school, college, and pro teams were a big part of the Smith family. Dan went on to letter in three varsity sports and was selected MVP of his high school baseball team. Dan brings over 20 years of business management and marketing experience with a focus on increasing profitability, coaching teams, and achieving results.
Dan lives in Marietta, Georgia and is proud to call Atlanta home for more than 30 years. When he is not helping schools raise money and achieve financial goals, you can find Dan spending quality time with his wife and two active children. Coaching youth sports, fishing, and keeping up with Lily the family Labrador are among his favorite hobbies.
