Meet Matt Burns
Matt Burns is the treasurer of Pixie Dust Wishes and held this position since mid 2017. His role in the organization is to monitor the funds coming in and going out of the organization. He provides the oversight and assistance that the President needs with the overall financial responsibilities involved with running a non-profit organization.
Burns graduated from Penn State University in 2006 and is currently a first grade teacher in State College Area School District. Before pursuing education, he worked in therapeutic support and always held a special place in his heart for those with disabilities and special needs. In his free time, he likes to hike, paint, and spend time with his son and family.
Matt wanted to become more involved in Pixie Dust Wishes because he was inspired by Miller's amazing work in advocating for the community. He enthusiastically accepted the offer to become a part of the Board of Directors so he could help the organization continue its success in making dreams come true. He truly believes in the mission and is proud to be part of it.
The most rewarding part of being on the Board of Pixie Dust Wishes for Burns is reading the nomination letters and then after all of the paperwork is submitted by the nominees, voting to send a family to Disney. He says it is a truly joyous moment when that is finalized and the wish is officially granted.
