Meet the Team
United Fundraising employees have well over 50 years combined experience developing and implementing unique fundraising campaigns for groups of all sizes and backgrounds.
Joe Schneeberger has been in the fundraising industry for 34 years. He started with Nasco in 1984 and was part of the QSP acquisition in 1993. He was with QSP as an employee until 2005. Joe enjoyed his tenure with QSP and received numerous growth awards throughout his career. He was named Field Sales Manager of the Year in 2005, the highest recognition that QSP offers to its sales force.
Joe and his sons, Joe and Tom, founded United Fundraising in 2005. They all enjoy being part of a family business and have developed relationships with the leading fundraising companies in the industry. An integral part of their growth strategy is providing a customer service program that is efficient, personable and fun. The company mantra “Big enough to serve, small enough to care” reflects this philosophy.
Joe graduated from Tiffin University with a degree in Organizational Behavior. He and his wife, Kathy, reside in Avon, Ohio. An avid runner and sports enthusiast, Joe is a lifelong Indians, Browns and Cavaliers fan!
Joe Schneeberger, Jr.
Joe Schneeberger, Jr., along with his father Joe and brother Tom, founded United Fundraising in 2005. His responsibilities include conducting kickoff assemblies, performing customer service, and selling programs to new accounts. Through his time in the business, Joe has formed friendships in the schools and has also developed an appreciation for all of the hard work that administrators and teachers put in. Joe gets a lot of satisfaction knowing that his work goes back to benefit the students and their learning. Standing 6’8″, he also gets a kick out of the reaction he gets from students when he enters schools!
Joe is a native Clevelander and graduated from St. Ignatius High School (’99) and John Carroll University (’03). He played basketball in high school and college. Joe is a devoted weightlifter and passionate sports fan. He avidly follows all sports, but is a die-hard fan of the Browns, Cavs, Indians, and Ohio State. He lives with his wife in Columbus and services accounts in that area of the state.

Having worked in the fundraising industry for a number of years, Tom has gained a greater appreciation for the work his father has done cultivating relationships with schools and helping them raise funds to benefit education.
Tom is a 2001 graduate of St. Ignatius High School and 2010 graduate of Cleveland State University. He and his wife reside in Bay Village. Being the father of three young children doesn’t allow much free time, but Tom enjoys weightlifting and practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
