MADISON, Wis. (1/15/13)--Calyn Ostrowski has been named director of the Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions, the charitable arm for the World Council of Credit Unions.

As director, she will manage the foundation's supporter funding and network to help expand WOCCU's international credit union development and education initiatives.

"The assistance we receive from World Council Supporters is vital to the work we do each day," said Brian Branch, WOCCU president/CEO. "Calyn's proven track record in international development and dialogue make her an excellent fit for building and expanding our global community."

Ostrowski most recently led program, operational and fundraising initiatives for the Global Health Initiative at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a foreign policy think-tank based in Washington, D.C. While there, Ostrowski developed and facilitated public policy dialogue programs to increase global health education and political willpower among domestic and international policymakers, nonprofit organizations, corporations, media and donors to improve the economic, social and physical well-being of communities in developing countries.

Ostrowski managed the GHI grants administration process and also developed policy dialogue programs for the center's Environmental Change and Security Program. Her fundraising strategies helped secure a record-high increase in GHI's revenue.
