With Gratitude from GrantWatch This Thanksgiving Holiday

As I sit at my table this Thanksgiving holiday, the first thing I will give thanks for is life, itself. I am grateful to God for those still with us, as well as the memories of those we lost. We all had one job this past 18 months, and that was to stay alive.

While we know it is often beyond our control, we did our best to be careful and to help others. How we spent the time and how we continue to spend time, speaks of who we are. During COVID, I saw my staff become a family sharing both joys and sorrows. However, through it all, they persevered to create a category for COVID-19 grants to come to the aid of nonprofits, businesses, and individuals suffering from the economic effects of the pandemic.

I saw them increase the number of currently available grants above the 7,000 mark. I also saw our grant writers with GrantWriterTeam step up their efforts to take on more and more nonprofit clients. Lastly, I found my development team working hard to redesign our sister website, YouHelp, as a free safe space for verified USA-based nonprofits to fundraise. With unbelievably helpful customer support combined with low rates, the site allows nonprofits to prepare a campaign with ease and to take it public.

I am grateful for the love and support of my immediate family, my staff, and my extended GrantWatch, YouHelp, and GrantWriterTeam family. In addition, I am grateful for the media and our social family. I want to express my sincere gratitude to our loyal membership and my great staff.

I wish you all a long life and a healthy, happy, and safe Thanksgiving holiday. Together, those of us who work for the greater good will provide our families and communities with a source of pride in who we are and what we accomplish.

All the best,
