Jennifer L. Goldstone
Founder & CEO
I founded Xukuma, LLC in 2016. Prior to launching Xukuma, LLC, I consulted for the Paul E. Singer Foundation (TPESF.) I joined TPESF from the role of COO at the Birthright Israel Foundation. Prior to that role, I was the co-executive partner of SeaChange Capital Partners. Founded by retired Goldman Sachs partners, SeaChange focuses on not-for-profit sector mergers and acquisitions, and other forms of collaboration between agencies and organizations, and provides advisory services around capital growth campaigns, spin-outs and restructurings.
Prior to SeaChange, I was the director of member services at the Jewish Funders Network, where I was responsible for developing membership strategy, and for recruiting and retaining members. Previously, I was the director of development at the Curriculum Initiative, a non-profit focused on building Jewish identity in Independent Schools. I launched my non-profit career at Outward Bound USA as national director of foundation relations, ultimately becoming the director of marketing and communications for Expeditionary Learning Schools, Outward Bound’s public education reform division.
A former journalist, I was a producer at ABC News from 1995 to 2003. I received my bachelor’s degree from Columbia University, where I majored in English Literature. I serve on the board of directors of The Support Center, as Chairperson, and am the founding Board Chair of At the Well. I am a 21/64 Certified Advisor, RevJen Professional Facilitator, Core Guide for Chief, a trained Interim Executive Director, hold a Certificate of Nonprofit Board Consulting from BoardSource, Agile Leadership Certification from Six Sigma International, Co-Active Coaching Fundamentals training, and a Certificate in Change Leadership from Cornell University.
