For months I have been looking for the right person to take over and continue the work of GrantsAlert.com. A few weeks ago this wonderful woman called me and clearly understood all the work and love I have devoted to this site and she declared her interest in securing the site, breathing new life into it and moving it into the future. That woman was Dr. Paula Love and the more I learned about Paula the more convinced I became that if she decided to actually purchase GrantsAlert.com, I would be placing it in the best hands possible.
Here’s the good…No, great news…I am passing the GrantsAlert.com torch on to Paula and I couldn’t be more excited or thankful.
For some background on Paula, I found an excellent piece written by MCH Strategic. They said: “ Known in the industry as the Matchmaker of Funding or the Funding Doctor, these phrases truly capture the essence of RFPMatch.com’s Dr. Paula Love. She is a renowned funding expert with decades of experience delivering grant strategies for for-profit and nonprofit organizations, state and local educational agencies, schools, and institutions of higher learning. Without a doubt, Dr. Love knows funding from every perspective, from the classroom to the boardroom. Her nearly 40-year career has earned her great respect as a highly successful funding guru, but it is a little known fact that this work actually began at an early age. Young seven-year-old Paula rallied a community, raising so much money for cystic fibrosis that she made the front-page headlines in a prominent newspaper. Her desire for funding continued into her high school years, where she led her classmates to raise the bar in fundraising. And that passion for helping others continues today, bringing funding resources to companies, classrooms and organizations. Dr. Love is a highly skilled funding consultant with a wealth of insight to offer to every company and organization she assists, helping improve processes and efficiencies while uncovering new opportunities for financial growth.”
In the coming weeks and months, Paula and her talented team are going to be working on the site and transforming it into an even more powerful tool for America’s educators and workforce development folks who need the information and guidance Paula and her team can provide. I cannot wait to watch all this unfold and know that I am making a great decision in handing my baby over to Paula. She shares my passion and desire to make a difference…to do good by helping others do good. I really am a very blessed man.
Thank you to all my friends and colleagues who have used GrantsAlert.com and/or contributed in some shape or form to its success. It’s been a great ride…and it’s only going to get better with Paula Love at the helm.
