Dr. Ronald Hash
Senior Business Development Director / Certified Grant Writer
Dr. W. Ronald Hash is an Inspired Speaker, Noted Author, Pastor, and Entrepreneur. Dr. Hash received his BS degree in Business Administration at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and furthered his education by acquiring a Master's Degree in Student Personnel and Counseling, and later obtained a Doctorate Degree in Community College Education. For more than forty years, Dr. Hash has been in the business management field and has owned several businesses, both for-profits as well as non-profits. For over a decade, Dr. Hash served as the Financial Aid Director and the Dean of Admissions at Wytheville Community College where he is responsible for a multiplicity of grants, which yielded millions of dollars in student financial aid. He later over the course of three years provided management and oversight for a new $3 million construction project in Winston Salem, NC for St. Peter's World Outreach Center. In 1992, Dr. Hash founded Love Christian Center where he now serves as the Senior Pastor, and also operates various community service programs as an extension of the church's vision. These programs include the Love Center Veteran's Home, a transitional facility that assists with food, clothes, shelter, job training, and other veteran needs. This center of love has received over $300,000 in grant funding for veterans, due to Dr. Hash's experiential knowledge to submit winning grants. After years of writing successful grants for a community college, multiple daycare centers, half-way houses, and after school programs, Dr. Hash recognized the tremendous financial needs of other non-profit organizations. Consequently, in the year of 2000, he established Grant Writers Specialist, Inc. a company that teaches non-profits how to properly position themselves to qualify for millions of dollars available in grant funding each year. His book, "Award-Winning Grant Proposal Writing" serves as an excellent tool that has taught hundreds of individuals and non-profit grant teams how to garner the funds needed to develop effective outreach for the betterment of families and communities.
