Thrive, a nonprofit organization that assists individuals in psychiatric crisis to move from surviving the crisis to thriving in the community of their choice, has hired a new full-time development associate to raise funds for the organization.

Tracey Gruver, originally from Ohio, has lived in North Carolina since 2004. A former public school teacher, Gruver graduated in December 2018, with a master’s degree in English from Western Carolina University, where she studied literature and technical and professional writing.
Initially coming on board as a part-time grant writer, Gruver has made the transition from education into nonprofit development with this new full-time role. She will focus on diversifying funding sources for Thrive by applying for federal, state, and local grants as well as increasing donations from local businesses and individual donors.
