Q&A with Wyatt Hill, Fundraising Sales Consultant
What do you do at Network for Good?
I speak with small non-profit organizations who are ready to adopt new technology and are in need of strategic and systematic help to make their organization more sustainable for the future. I also host and moderate the weekly webinars about various topics at hand from fundraising to best practices and how Network For Good works to make fundraising easier and more effective for non-profits.
What is your experience with nonprofit organizations outside of Network for Good?
I’ve been volunteering since I was a teenager at camps, youth soccer coaching, and various community organizations through my high school. While I was at the University of Virginia, I was involved with Madison House and Seeds of Hope, a charity who services extremely poor communities outside of São Paulo, Brazil. I made two, week-long trips to Brazil that still have an impact on me today.
What attracts you to nonprofits?
In short, it’s knowing I have helped people succeed in putting more time towards their mission and set them up for long-term success. I draw the analogy of my work being like that of a sports coach. The coach has the resources and the experience to help those around them prosper. Whether it’s an on-hands approach or mentorship, the endgame is to bring out the best attributes for each player. That give-back mentality and expanding it toward communities across America through Network for Good is how I use our resources to help non-profits thrive.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
The stories. Every day I hear compelling and incredible stories from individuals about their organizations, why they started their non-profit, and the successes they’ve had within their community and worldwide. Also, Network for Good is a great place to show up to work every day, full of amazing people with diverse backgrounds who all share a common denominator: wanting to help people do good for others.
What do you enjoy doing outside work?
I’m an active person, so any activity that gets me moving. I still play soccer, run around to take in the sights of DC, frequent the tennis courts, and will always join a group of friends for a hike out in the mountains. If I’m not moving, you can find me sitting by the pool and/or the beach reading a book.
Dream vacation? The Outer Banks, it reminds me of family vacations as a kid.
Most recent book read? “The Name of the Wind,” which I would highly recommend if you like “Lord of the Rings” and “Game of Thrones.”
Last movie seen in movie theater? “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” – hahaha! Some of my favorite movies!
Theme song? Any Garth Brooks song, specifically “Friends in Low Places”
Favorite color? Cerulean Blue, oddly specific but you can find it in the Crayola box of 64 crayons.
All time favorite athlete? Aaron Rodgers
