Kristen Oliveri is the director of communications at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. She oversees marketing communications, publications, press relations, events, social media and the Foundation’s website.
Kristen is a Granite Stater, born, bred and schooled: She grew up in North Sutton, swimming and skating at Kezar Lake and learning to ski at King Ridge; she studied economics and political science at the University of New Hampshire’s Whittemore School of Business and Economics (now the Peter T. Paul School of Business and Economics) and earned a Master’s in Public Administration at UNH.
Kristen came to the Foundation in 2003 from the high-tech world — her interest spurred by a partnership between the Foundation and industry to increase the impact of charitable giving.
She also serves on the board of directors of the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation and on the steering committee of CommA, a national organization for communications professionals at community foundations.
Kristen lives in Manchester with her husband and daughter; summer weekends find them packing up their trailer and camping gear and heading north to the White Mountains.
