As President of Meier Jost & Associates, Steve helps 501(c)(3) organizations develop and secure financial resources to achieve their visions and goals.

He founded MJA in 2009, bringing with him more than 35 years of experience in organizing and leading capital campaigns, major gift development and annual fund solicitation for a host of nonprofit organizations, including Big Brothers & Big Sisters, The University of Missouri, and the YMCA of Greater St. Louis, where Steve served as Vice President of Development.
