NextAfter combines the perpetual learning of a fundraising research lab, the practical application of a digital-first agency, and the rigorous instruction of a training institute. Although NextAfter is not a nonprofit organization, they are very much a cause-based organization. NextAfter's mission is to decode what works in digital fundraising and then equip nonprofits with that knowledge to fulfill its vision to unleash the most generous generation in the world. This is what drives everything NextAfter does.
