Our own Alexi Nelson has been promoted to the position of Resource Development Manager, a role that will be critical to our fundraising efforts in the months and years to come. A Sequim native, Alexi graduated from Central Washington University and went on to begin her career in nonprofits in Sun Valley, Idaho. Returning to the Olympic Peninsula to be closer to her family and the mountains, she initially joined United Way as our Administrative and Operations Assistant.
We are thrilled to announce two exciting staffing changes at United Way Clallam County.
In regards to her new role at United Way Clallam County, CEO Christy Smith says, "...local non-profits are going to continue to need help recovering from the economic fallout of the pandemic.... We know that we have to continue to push to look for new ways to support the agencies who provide services to our most vulnerable populations."
Outside of the office, Alexi spends her time exploring and photographing the Olympic Peninsula.
Megan Begley, our new Administrative and Operations Assistant, returned to her hometown of Sequim in late 2020 after receiving her BSBA in Finance from Northern Arizona University.
"Megan is an excellent addition to our team. She brings enthusiasm for our beautiful community and knowledge in finance that is vital to the work we do supporting our non-profits," said Christy Smith.
United Way of Clallam County partners with local non-profits who offer the best available programs and services that improve situations for families and strengthen the entire community. Donations can be directed towards a specific non-profit or placed in the community fund.
