New Hampshire Charitable Foundation

We partnered with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation on the search for a Vice President of Community Engagement and Impact. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation is New Hampshire’s statewide community foundation, founded in 1962 by and for the people of New Hampshire.

Our work resulted in the recruitment of Simon Delekta to the role.

In this role, he oversees the Foundation’s work in grantmaking, community partnerships and strategic initiatives.

Delekta joined the Charitable Foundation as a Senior Program Officer in 2014.

Prior to his work at the Foundation, he served as Global Philanthropic Advisor at The Philanthropic Initiative, an initiative of The Boston Foundation.

He has served as Director of The Network for Engaged International Donors (formerly New England International Donors) and of the Community Foundation Global Giving Network. His experience in the nonprofit sector also includes Managing Government and Community Affairs at the New York Public Library and serving as Director of Voter Education and Civic Engagement for the New York League of Conservation Voters.

He lives in Portsmouth with his family, and since 2012 has been a proud “Big Brother” through Big Brothers Big Sisters programs in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

Delekta studied Spanish and Political Science at Bates College in Maine. He earned a Master’s degree in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts University in Boston.
