Frequently Asked Questions

What is NationBuilder?

NationBuilder is software designed to power organizations, movements, and campaigns.

The company was founded in November of 2009 by CEO Jim Gilliam and launched in April of 2011. Its headquarters is in downtown Los Angeles.

NationBuilder offers easy-to-update websites, a people database, and communication tools like email, text messaging, and social media — all in one system. Businesses, nonprofits, governments, and politicians use NationBuilder to organize their communities and build more meaningful relationships with customers, supporters, and constituents.

Do you work for NationBuilder?

No. Since 2013, I have been freelancing on purpose as a Certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect. I have worked with political campaigns and nonprofits in the United States, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Malta, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. And I take enormous pride in building beautiful and useful NationBuilder themes.

How do you know so much about NationBuilder?

Before setting out on my own as a Certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect, I worked at NationBuilder’s HQ in Los Angeles. There, I learned the platform under the mentorship of the late Jim Gilliam, NationBuilder’s Founder & then CEO.

Since 2012, I have used NationBuilder nearly every day to help campaigns & causes deploy powerful websites, grow their supporter lists, and raise money online.
