Stephen Nill founded CharityChannel in 1992 as a means of connecting his nonprofit hospital chain's fund development staff over the Internet to their colleagues at other organizations. That first discussion community grew into what is today the oldest and largest community of third-sector professionals in the world, comprised of well over 100,000 participants worldwide. He has been working in the US and international third sector for more than four decades. He has served as the Chief Development Officer at a major Southern California university, the CEO of a large health care foundation, a senior vice-president of fund development of a U.S. west-coast nonprofit hospital chain, as a founder and acting director of development of a parochial school in his community, and as a founder of an organization dedicated to providing food and clothing for homeless persons.

Stephen enjoys composing symphonic and choir music at wee hours of the morning in his studio. He lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife, Janet, and his golden retriever, Gypsy.
