Jenny Goldstock Wright


Jenny is the Founder and CEO of Driving Force Group. Marrying her desire for social and racial equity with her frustration over well-meaning philanthropists faltering at the hands of bad advice, Jenny created  DFG. The backbone of her work is educating both new and existing philanthropists, and those surrounding the philanthropists, on the P.E.E.R.S™  (Participatory, Efficient, Effective, Replicable and Sustainable) model of philanthropy she identified.  This includes ensuring the philanthropists understand the nuance of IRS governance and industry best practices and do not take on unnecessary risks. It is Jenny’s goal for traditional philanthropists, foundations, corporations and new philanthropists to leverage one another's skills, experiences and resources to create deep community impact.

Jenny received her Bachelor of Arts degree at Skidmore College and her Master of Education from Harvard University.
