Robert G. Bare, Co-founder and Vice President at Spiritual Awakenings International, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in grant writing and public service.
With decades of experience to his credit, Mr. Bare has found much success as the co-founder and vice president of Spiritual Awakenings International, a nonprofit organization that raises global spiritual awareness through collaborations with a network of individuals and groups around the world, since 2020. In addition to this position, he excelled as a grant and technical writer for 30 years, during which time he produced grants for homeless shelters, homes for disabled veterans, water treatment plants and sewage treatment plants. Between 1970 and 1992, he was active as a police officer with both the Santa Cruz Police Department and the California Highway Patrol. Throughout his career, Mr. Bare has likewise served as an adjunct professor with National University, a city administrator and general manager for multiple communities across California and Oregon, the executive director for a community resource center, a tribal administrator for a Native American nation, and a staff executive for an international consulting company.
Mr. Bare was notably inspired by a near-death experience in 2009, having survived a massive heart attack on a plane, and was compelled by a video of George Harrison, former guitarist for The Beatles, to share his story to the public via speaking engagements and appearances on podcasts, YouTube videos and television shows. He has been featured on the National Geographic Channel’s “Visiting the Beyond,” been interviewed for a television series in New Zealand, and was spotlighted as a case study in Debra Diamond’s book “Life After Near Death.” Honored as the Peace Officer of the Year in 1976, he was subsequently nominated as the Special Districts General Manager of the Year in 1997 as well as the Citizen of the Year in 1976 and 2004. Looking toward the future, Mr. Bare hopes to continue spreading his message and sharing his experience while writing grants for as long as he possibly can.
