The NY Program Manager is responsible for facilitating the organization’s mission of acquiring and donating essential children’s items to grantee partners throughout the five boroughs of NYC.

The Manager facilitates strong partnerships with our network of NY grantee partners to understand how Good+ can best meet donation needs and support these innovative nonprofits. A primary focus of this role will be to relaunch Good+Foundation’s volunteer program as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis, as our volunteer program is an essential operational and fundraising mechanism. The Manager will lead outreach and recruitment to schedule volunteer groups that support efforts to receive, screen, inventory, and prepare outgoing donations of a wide range of children’s products in a warehouse setting. The position plays a significant role in supporting the organization’s donor outreach, fundraising, and growth objectives, particularly with corporate partners. The Manager works closely with a small program team and the corporate partnerships team, and supervises the NY Volunteer Coordinator and NY Program Coordinator.

About Good+Foundation: Good+Foundation is a leading national nonprofit that works to dismantle multi-generational poverty by pairing tangible goods with innovative services for low-income fathers, mothers and caregivers, creating an upward trajectory for the whole family. With an early focus on mothers and children, Good+ expanded programming in 2010 to strengthen support for non-custodial and formerly incarcerated fathers to address one of the root causes of cyclical poverty: father absence. Today, the organization partners with a national network of social service programs to pair goods – such as cribs, car seats and diapers – with mental health support, workforce development, co-parenting classes, preparation for the high school equivalency exam and more. By giving fathers tools, dignity and opportunities to re-engage with their families, mothers are getting more support, children are getting greater access to their fathers and men are learning how to become the dads they want to be.
Good+Foundation has offices and warehouses in New York City and Los Angeles and strategically distributes more than $7 Million worth of goods each year across the country. In 2020, 92 percent of expenses went directly back into Good+ programs. The organization has earned seven consecutive 4-star ratings on Charity Navigator – the highest rating possible – as well as a GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency and accreditation by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance for transparency, efficiency and operations.
