Using the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations’ Standards of Excellence accreditation tool as a model, the WCCF has developed a charity governance certificate program to help improve the governance practices of charities in Washington County.

Commencing in the fall of 2023, the certificate program is presented in six sessions using local content experts. To provide for the greatest interaction and learning experience, each class is limited to approximately 12 participants. All sessions are free and held in the CARE Education Center in Eighty Four, PA.

After successful completion, participants will be certified as a Community PILLAR. Over time, special WCCF grant pools may be provided to charities whose leadership has been designated as a Community PILLAR. We anticipate hosting one PILLARS class each year.
