Karen Pearl, President & CEO
Karen Pearl, President & CEO of God’s Love We Deliver, joined the organization in September 2006, bringing with her over 30 years of experience in nonprofit leadership. Since its founding in 1985, God’s Love has responded to the urgent need for food and nutrition experienced by people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves – people living with life-altering illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, end stage renal disease and advanced diabetes.
During her tenure, Karen has expanded the organization’s capacity, increasing meal numbers by 100% and growing its advocacy program significantly to ensure access to services for those most in need. The number of volunteers has grown to over 14,400, and the number of meals cooked and delivered to a new milestone of over 1.8 million in a single year. God’s Love operates with an annual budget of over $20 million, of which 70% is raised through private philanthropy.
