Vice President for Marketing & Development
Job Description: 

GOOD Plus Foundation

Vice President for Marketing & Development 

New York, New York

 

Background 

 

Founded in 2001 by Jessica Seinfeld, GOOD+ Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that addresses multi-generational poverty by pairing donations of critically needed goods—including cribs, strollers and diapers—with transformational services to help low-income parents create an upward trajectory for their children. Seventeen years later, the organization has donated almost $45 million in children's items to a national network of over 125 antipoverty programs.

 

Today, GOOD+ has expanded its efforts to help address one of the root causes of family poverty: father absence. Through this work, GOOD+ Foundation gives non-custodial and low-income dads the tools they need to be active co-parents to their children, while they work toward reaching goals like getting a high school equivalency certificate, opening a savings account or finding stable employment. 

 

With programs and warehouses located in New York City and Los Angeles, GOOD+ Foundation strategically distributes over $6 Million worth of goods each year. Working with antipoverty programs through an incentive-based model that offers long-term support to parents and children in need, GOOD+ has helped improve outcomes for families. 

 

GOOD+ is an acknowledged thought leader in addressing the role of fathers in building strong families and communities. In November 2018, Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld presented at the prestigious Aspen Institute.

The organization has a 4-Star rating on Charity Navigator  the highest rating possible  as well as accreditation by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance for transparency, efficiency and operations. For more information visit: www.goodplusfoundation.org
