Jeff DeLuca – Secretary, Board Development  Chair
COMMITTEES: Board Development
OCCUPATION: WA State Community Action Partnership, Executive Director
AFFILIATES: n/a
TERMS: 2021 –  2023

As a working musician since I was a teenager and now as a statewide nonprofit leader, I’m eager to help OFS preserve the Capitol Theater as a community asset that supports local and regional art. I want to help access funds to upgrade/maintain the space and attract national talent. I am concerned about the future of spaces like the Capitol Theater given local development pressures and the monopolization of venues by corporations like Live Nation.  After growing up in Florida and starting my career in Chapel Hill, NC, I moved to Olympia with my partner in August 2017. Upon arriving, I managed Renata Rollins’s campaign for Olympia City Council. Since January 2018, I have worked for the Washington State Community Action Partnership and have served as Executive Director there since December 2019. WSCAP is a statewide association of 30 Community Action Agencies fighting poverty and inequality all across Washington State.
