Melinda Mosier of Keene has been named vice president of the Donor Engagement and Philanthropy Services Department at the Charitable Foundation. Melinda has been with the Foundation since 2009, first serving as a senior program officer in the Foundation’s Community Impact department and as director of donor services since 2016. Melinda worked in nonprofit development prior to her career at the Foundation.
“Melinda is uniquely qualified for this role,” said Foundation president and CEO Richard Ober. “She is a strategic and thoughtful leader who will help the Foundation deepen our engagement with generous donors and live into the priorities of our strategic plan, ‘Together we Thrive.’”
Melinda began her new role in March.
“I am deeply honored to serve New Hampshire in this role as we develop new ways for generous people to align their giving with pressing community needs,” said Melinda. “Our state has great generosity and opportunity, and we also have great disparities in outcomes for people. I am grateful to be in a position where my work can help New Hampshire become a community where everyone can thrive.”
Melinda takes over from Rick Peck, who served as vice president of development and philanthropy services at the Foundation since 2017.
“It has been one of the great honors of my career to lead the efforts of the Development and Philanthropy Services team these past six years,” said Rick. “My work — in collaboration with my colleagues, and in partnership with our donors and their advisors — was focused on delivering on all that a community foundation has to offer. I will forever be a champion of community philanthropy.”
The Foundation community is grateful for Rick’s contributions, and we wish him all the very best in his future endeavors. Rick will leave the Foundation in April.
