Kristin Melville - Executive Director - WCA Foundation
Stacey Hannon introduced Kristin Melville, new Executive Director for WCA Foundation in Jamestown.  Kristin grew up in Jamestown and returned to Jamestown after spending the last 25 years in Maine as a fundraising professional.
Born and raised in Jamestown, Kristin’s parents were Swedish immigrants.  Her father managed Midway Park and Long Point State Park.  In her 25 years in Maine, she worked for various hospitals, foundations and hospice organizations.
Kristin gave an overview of WCA Foundation and its importance to the community and UPMC Chautauqua. 
WCA Foundation is comprised of 48 endowed funds.  The investment portfolio is around $18 million in invested money.  WCA Foundation has funded UPMC Chautauqua for over $600,000. 
Jamestown is a very different place when Kristin was here but many thing remain the same.  Innovation, kindness, hope, good neighbors, and generosity are the hallmarks of Jamestown.  Those things have not changed.
WCA Foundation funds certain initiatives at UPMC Chautauqua and is a fiduciary for all the funds held at the foundation. It is very important to have a strong hospital in Chautauqua County. 
Kristin plans to join Rotary in January 2022.
