About Me

Meryl Ellingson (she/her) is the Annual Giving Manager at WCA, and brings experience in strategic communications, political fundraising and non-profit operations to the development team. Prior to joining WCA, she worked for two California-based organizations in the gender equity space – a cause she believes intersects deeply with environmental justice and conservation. In her free time, she’s most likely running the trails in Bellingham or skiing and hiking in the Cascades with her husky, but (sometimes) sits still long enough to watch Premier League or NWSL soccer games with her partner on the weekends. She holds a B.A. in International Political Economy from Colorado College and, originally a Wisconsinite, strong opinions about cheese curds.
