Jeremy Goldstein, a partner at Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, as well as a member of the Board of Directors with Fountain House, recently hosted two exclusive wine dinners in New York City.
Joining Mr. Goldstein were Wine Dinner Chairs, Omar Khan and Jim Finkel, who collaborated in the effort to raise funds for Fountain House––a self-help program that focuses on assisting people throughout the process of recovering from significant mental disorders.
A number of high-profile guests attended the events, which, together, raised $56,000 in support of the cause. The initial wine dinner, held at the NoMad Hotel in May of 2018, raised $33,300, while the second dinner, a follow-up held due to the first dinner’s immense success, garnered $23,000.
Today, mental illness is considered to be one of the most significant crises of the age, affecting more than 450 million people around the world. Through the efforts of Fountain House, which has helped to combat mental illness since its inception in 1944, a new light has been shed on the crisis, leading many suffering from the condition, toward increasingly effective solutions.
Studies show that 85 percent of people afflicted with mental illness also struggle with steady employment, yet, through the Fountain House Employment initiative, 42 percent of participants have maintained employment throughout the New York City area.
Jeremy Goldstein, who holds a Juris Doctor degree from New York University School of Law, as well as Master’s degree from the University of Chicago, joined the Board of Directors at Fountain House in 2010. Prior to beginning his postgraduate studies, earned a Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University.

Relatively early in his career, Jeremy Goldstein took notice of a trend occurring throughout governance circles in which a multitude of executive compensation consulting firms began separating from larger entities due to discussions regarding proposed conflicts of interest; after analyzing the circumstances, he decided to found Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates.
With over 20 years of experience under his belt, he is consistently able to bring ideas to life by relying on his acquired knowledge, as many of the issues faced in his daily routine, can be referenced back to a prior time.
