A six-year board member of the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation has been appointed as executive director of the nonprofit funding arm for school district classroom-based projects.
Nancy DeLucia recently stepped into her new role.
"We couldn't think of a better-suited candidate than Nancy for this position," Jen Hammel, HHEF board president said in a press release. "Nancy brings a renewed sense of energy to the foundation. She is a community leader and is enthusiastic about fundraising for the organization."
Before taking the HHEF position, DeLucia worked for 11 years at the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, most recently as the director of policy and community engagement. In this role, DeLucia represented the cultural alliance throughout the region supporting arts organizations, working with towns that are using arts and culture to revitalize their communities and advocating at the local, state and federal levels to advance issues of concern to the cultural sector.
"The time was right for me to transition into this new role," DeLucia, of Horsham Township, said in the release. "Our goal is to enrich the lives of our students and the HHEF will allow me to do that, while also funding valuable community programming. I’m delighted to be in a position to give back to a district that served my children, now in their 20s, so well."
DeLucia has served on the boards of the Hatboro-Horsham Educational Foundation and Hedgerow Theater. She earned a BS degree from University of Delaware and went on to earn a MA in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
