Emily Stelmaszek: Founder and President
Emily began her fundraising career working for Entertainment Publications in a sales support capacity in 2008. She learned first-hand what the customers expected and needed to create a successful fundraiser from start to finish. Over the next 10 years, she continued to grow within the Entertainment organization acquiring extensive experience in sales, service, operations and delivery. Emily worked with thousands of directors, chair-people, principals, coaches, parents and volunteers listening to their needs while competing against alternative fundraisers. Understanding that not every group’s fundraising needs were the same, and one solution did not fit all, she started Out of the Box Fundraising. OTB only represents companies with high-quality products and successful revenue-generating reputations built on repeat business. All of these different fundraising solutions have been tried, tested and tracked for maximum efficiency. Emily and her team can now provide specific solutions based on the different needs of each group.
