A connection many years ago, through the Ziv Tzedakah Fund, introduced Nina Mogilnik to the Good People Fund’s Founding Executive Director Naomi Eisenberger. This Spring, she joined their Board of Trustees. The Good People Fund (www.goodpeoplefund.org) is a national organization rooted in the Jewish tradition of tikkun olam (repairing the world) that offers financial support and mentorship to small, effective initiatives in Israel and the U.S.
“We could not be happier having Nina join our dedicated Board of Trustees, as she brings extensive experience in the nonprofit and philanthropy worlds. Nina is a grant maker with a strong commitment to relationship building with grantees in addition to a central focus on education, mental health, disabilities, and other social issues. This connects deeply with our mission and philosophy,” said Naomi Eisenberger, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Good People Fund.
“I am delighted to deepen my longstanding connection with The Good People Fund by joining its board of trustees. This feels like such a seamless evolution, and a wonderful way to enhance my more than decade-long involvement with The Fund and its important and urgently needed work.” said Mogilnik.
Nina’s professional career has encompassed work in the philanthropic, nonprofit and government sectors, including as the first Senior Program Officer of the Altman Foundation, and as Founding Director of the Office of Public Private Partnerships for the New York City Administration for Children’s Services, during the Bloomberg Administration. She is presently consulting to a select group of nonprofit and foundation clients and also serves on the board of Birch Family Services, a NYC-based nonprofit educational and disability services organization. She is also an avocational writer, and has had a number of essays about her family’s experiences dealing with Alzheimer’s and autism published in Hadassah Magazine and in The Jewish Week. Nina holds a BA in philosophy from Union College and MPhil from the University of Chicago. She currently lives with her family in Great Neck, New York.
About The Good People Fund
Founded in 2008, The Good People Fund, inspired by the Jewish concept of tikkun olam (repairing the world), responds to significant problems such as poverty, disability, trauma and social isolation, primarily in the United States and Israel. The GPF provides financial support and management guidance for small to medium grassroots efforts whose grant recipients are leading their non-profits with annual budgets under $500,000 and no professional development staff, but are driven and determined to make a difference in their communities. With its guiding philosophy that small actions can have huge impacts and its emphasis on the personal connection, the GPF has raised and granted more than $7 million dollars.
