Jill Adams McDonough joins NPH USA staff
NPH USA President and CEO John Deinhart provides an organizational update.
October 7, 2021
Please join me in welcoming the newest addition to our NPH USA family, Jill Adams McDonough. Jill joins NPH USA in the new role of Vice President of Donor Engagement and Strategy. I’m happy to note that Jill is already diving right in to her new responsibilities beginning on Monday, September 27.
Jill will lead our efforts in designing and executing effective marketing strategies to reach, inspire and connect donors to our mission and make it easy for them to participate in our work. In this role, Jill will work across the NPH USA team to advance our marketing efforts – leveraging technology, analytics and best practice – in building awareness, engagement and funding for the work of NPH.
As a member of the NPH USA Leadership Team reporting to me, Jill will also advance our work in helping develop, oversee, execute, and measure NPH USA’s organizational strategy.
Throughout her professional career, Jill led strategy and execution for many leading multinational marketing and ad agencies. She has helped build powerhouse brands and identify growth opportunities for some of the world’s best-known companies, start-ups, and not-for-profit organizations. Jill also founded, led, and grew her own strategic marketing firm for over a decade.
Jill has been invited to speak at many national innovation and marketing conferences and has been the recipient of top industry awards, including Edison awards, Leo Burnett’s Idea of the Year Award, Edelman’s first Chairman’s Award, Northwestern University’s Out of the Box Award, and the PR industry’s top Silver Anvil Award.
Jill believes that “People fall in love with organizations and brands when those organizations fulfill a deep human need and authentically and transparently live up to their promises.”
Jill notes that she joined NPH USA because “It is unlike any other organization I know. The children are proof that love overcomes the most trying circumstances and desperate situations.” She adds that “When ordinary people come together to help, there are extraordinary results, and the line between giver and beneficiary, totally blurs.”
While new to this role, Jill is not new to the work of NPH. After working with several not-for-profit organizations, Jill discovered NPH through the first-hand stories of several NPH evangelists. Soon after, she agreed to serve on the NPH USA Midwest Board of Directors, eventually serving as Chairman for three years.
Jill and her husband John have since sponsored four NPH Godchildren, one for each of their own four children. Like anyone who has ever visited an NPH home, she became utterly smitten by the children and the transformative power of NPH when she visited our home in NPH El Salvador. Jill later organized her extended family members to visit the children and staff at NPH Dominican Republic.
Jill and John (and their “fun sheep-a-doodle”) live in Elmhurst, IL, and are extremely proud of their now grown-up children, all of whom are caring, global citizens.
Please join me in welcoming Jill to our NPH USA Family!
