WCCF appoints new allocations and programs coordinator
The Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) has appointed Crystal Sickles as its allocations and programs coordinator. Sickles will be responsible for the management of the WCCF’s allocation cycles, which include grants to charities and educational scholarships for students. She will also assist advisors to donor advised funds in recommending grants to the Board of Trustees.
Additionally, Sickles is responsible for the facilitation of community programs as approved by the Board. Her initial program focus will be to help qualifying 501(c)(3) charities prepare for WCCF Gives, a community-wide Day of Giving scheduled for Sept. 10. During the one-day event, each donation made to participating charities via www.wccfgives.org will be increased by a percentage of a $100,000 match pool that has been sponsored by Washington Financial, Chapman Corporation, Rose Plastic, Observer-Reporter, Toyota of Washington, Alex Paris Contracting and anonymous WCCF contributors.
Previously, Sickles was employed as manager of membership and community development for the Girl Scouts of Western PA in Southpointe. An honors graduate of Charleroi High School, she earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and resides in Carnegie.
