As principal of Masquerade Events, A.J. Steinberg has been creating outstanding successful events for nonprofit and social clients since 1999.
With a background in marketing and fundraising, it was natural for her event planning company to become specialists in nonprofit events. Working as a nonprofit consultant and liaison, A.J. became known for her success guiding volunteer committees in their production of nonprofit galas, fashion shows, concerts and street festivals.
Working with a broad spectrum of nonprofits including The Jane Goodall Institute, Cystic Fibrosis, BreatheLA and Union Rescue Mission, A.J. became the leader in the field of committee-based fundraising. With a keen understanding of the benefits of engaging volunteer committees to create fundraising events, A.J. also studied the risks involved with having non-trained volunteers representing a nonprofit in their fundraising efforts.
In 2015 A.J. created Queen Bee Fundraising which focuses on the art of nonprofit special event management. A.J. teaches volunteers and nonprofit professionals the strategies for producing successful fundraising events along with guidance on how to successfully lead volunteer committees to achieve their goals. Her workbook series, Successful Nonprofit Events, will be published by the Charity Channel Press in 2017. A.J. Steinberg leads webinars, workshops and appears at speaking engagements that teach the art of committee-based nonprofit special event management.
