"According to the late John Wooden, UCLA champion basketball coach, 'You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.' Always strive to help others and encourage recipients to 'pay it forward.'"

"I help nonprofit organizations and individuals use social technology for good. My passion is focusing on the various ways social technology can aid in advancing the missions of nonprofits."
Founder and President, Lighthouse Counsel
"Effective fundraising drives relationship building — between a nonprofit and those who are passionate enough about its mission to make a gift. Fostering these relationships comes with a great responsibility, as well as great joy and opportunity for the donor as well as the organization and those it serves."

Steve joined the PETA Foundation in 2007 as development director. Prior to joining PETA, he worked with award-winning agency Adams Hussey & Associates (now Chapman, Cubine, Adams + Hussey) as director of planning and list services. He began his formal fundraising career in 1991.
