Elizabeth Paul, J.D.
Vice President of Donor Impact
Growing up in Greenville, South Carolina, Elizabeth Paul set her sights on a career in law. She earned her undergraduate degree at USC Columbia, and her law degree at the Charleston School of Law, but it was politics, not law, that started her on her fundraising career path. After fundraising for statewide and mayoral races back to back, she became a full-time fundraiser first with Trident United Way and then with Sea Island Habitat. “Access to education has always been a common thread throughout my work: in politics, in my non-profit roles, and of course at UNCG.”” She moved with her family to Guilford County in 2017.
As the daughter of a long-time public school educator, Paul says the opportunity to work for shift_ed was one she couldn’t let pass. “We have the unique opportunity to fund something that is going to transform lives today and generations of lives in perpetuity. Who wouldn’t want to get behind that?” Paul shares her time with her husband, two young boys and beagle, Patches.
