What I like about the Steier Group:
Having been a Catholic school teacher and principal for over 20 years, I understand the positive impact a successful campaign can have on an organization. Working for the Steier Group allows me the opportunity to help nonprofits achieve their financial goals and fulfill their missions in the communities they serve.
