Nathan Hill

Vice President, NextAfter Institute

Having worked in both large and small nonprofits, Nathan Hill has seen the way that optimization can influence and transform the work of an organization in fundraising and beyond.

He believes that by sharing the learnings of NextAfter’s digital research library on a larger scale, nonprofits – no matter their budget or resources – can be equipped through the learnings of others to raise more names, donors, and dollars. And if they can grow names, donors, and dollars, they can grow their impact in the world.

Prior to joining NextAfter, Nathan managed the direct and outbound digital marketing for a major nonprofit involved in the broadcasting, higher education, and publishing industries. He oversaw enterprise marketing automation platforms, directed both creative and technical marketing communications staff, and developed multi-channel campaigns in the areas of lead generation and fundraising.

Originally hailing from the pumpkin capital of the world – in Morton, IL – Nathan currently lives in the Dallas area with his wife and 2 daughters.

*Update: If you’ve seen this page before, you may remember that Nathan was anxiously waiting to find out what happened to Luke Skywalker. He now has mixed feelings on the matter. Feel free to email Nathan your Star Wars opinions (or fundraising questions) at
