Kurt Steiner, the founder and CEO of CharityHowTo has been helping to build and establish Internet companies throughout his career. Kurt worked for 5 years in Sales and Business Development and was the Director of Sales at FairMarket, Inc. (NASDAQ: FAIM) before it was acquired by eBay. Then at FirstGiving Kurt helped thousands of nonprofit organizations online since 2003. As Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Kurt helped to open and establish Firstgiving (www.firstgiving.com). During his time at the company it raised over $100 million online for charity.
While at FirstGiving and speaking to charities and nonprofits on a daily basis, he was told time and time again of the frustration many felt with the internet; they continued to hear of the power of the web and social media, but learning how to leverage this new technology while simultaneously running their organization and carrying out their mission seemed an impossible feat.
CharityHowTo was born out of a simple idea: help Nonprofits succeed in their mission while raising more money and operating more effectively as a nonprofit or charitable organization and help nonprofits raise more money without requiring a huge financial commitment. Kurt's mission is to show nonprofits step-by-step how to leverage the Internet and today's technology in order to attract a wider audience and maintain existing supporters.
Since its inception CharityHowTo has evolved into the premier online Learning Center for nonprofit professionals worldwide.
CharityHowTo is now a thriving community of over 300,000 nonprofit professionals and is growing daily!
