New Goodera CIO Virginia Tenpenny's message for partners

Dear Goodera Partners,

In the season of giving and gratitude, it is with great enthusiasm that I connect with you from my new role as Goodera’s President, North America and Chief Impact Officer. I am honored to be joining an innovative company that is harnessing the purpose, passion, and commitment of many great brands and employees to address some of the most pressing issues facing our communities and the planet.

Companies around the world are stepping up to play a bigger role to promote a healthy planet and strengthen communities. Goodera serves as a force multiplier to help companies tap into one of their best assets, their employees’ talent, and sense of purpose, by creating volunteer experiences that serve nonprofit needs and maximize positive impact. Goodera’s technology and local hosts in 100+ countries deliver curated programs that are relevant to employee interests, enhance company culture, and advance impact priorities.

At Goodera, we know the best ideas and solutions come from the communities we serve.  Today we are pleased to announce the launch of the Goodera Impact Innovator Fund, an investment fund that supports community-minded innovators exploring ways to solve some of the world’s pressing problems through sustainable and creative approaches. The fund will provide financial support, access to tools and technical resources, and connect participants with a network of mentors and fellow change-makers to scale solutions that address local and global challenges.  For more information about the fund or to apply click here.

In early 2024 we will host listening sessions in communities across North America to better understand priorities across nonprofits, community leaders, our network of hosts, and corporate partners.  We aim to co-create solutions and experiences that bring more people into the global volunteer movement and accelerate the pace of positive change.

Put simply, Goodera powers those who are helping others.  We look forward to connecting with you soon to hear your insights and ideas for the next era of impact.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and a great start to the new year.


Virginia Tenpenny

President, North America and Chief Impact Officer
