Board Member Nick Brennan Headshot

Nick was first introduced to Paths for Families 9 years ago when he served as a reference for a friend’s home study. Since that time, Nick and his husband, PJ, sought the organization’s services in helping to create their family and adopt their two sons.

For the past seventeen years, Nick has honed his skills as a fundraising and marketing professional with leading arts, cultural, human service, and educational organizations, including Arena Stage, the National Cathedral, the Levine School of Music, the National Endowment for the Arts and United Cerebral Palsy. Nick currently serves as the Director of Development at University of Maryland School of Public Policy. Originally from western Massachusetts, Nick has been in the Washington, DC area since receiving his Bachelors of Music in Musical Theatre from Catholic University. Nick is currently pursuing graduate work in nonprofit management and leadership at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy.

Nick and his family live in College Park, where Nick serves as the Chair of the College Park Community Foundation and has previously served on several city volunteer committees. Nick enjoys running (7 half marathons to date), cooking plant-based meals, and keeping up with his very energetic boys.
