My guest today is Stephen King. From tech founder to nonprofit CFO and fundraiser, Steve brings a unique combination of vision, foresight, and experience to help nonprofits maximize their cash flow and operational efficiency. He’s been a dedicated board member of many nonprofit organizations. He spent seven years working for Amnesty International USA – first as Deputy Executive Director- Finance & Administration, and then as its Director of Development, overseeing 300% growth, then raising over $20M a year. His time at Amnesty reinforced Steve’s life-long commitment to giving back to the community through charitable causes.

Regarded as a top accounting industry thought leader and founder of the first company to deliver accounting over the internet, he’s currently serving as Founder & CEO of GrowthForce, a heart-centered company with specialized teams providing accounting for nonprofits.
