Jeremy Goldstein: Providing Funding for Fountain House Initiatives

Published / by TheRugbyUnion

Jeremy Goldstein is a world-class corporate lawyer with a Bachelors degree from Cornell University, a Masters from the University of Chicago, and then received his Juris Doctor (law degree) from New York University’s School of Law. Straight out of college, he joined a premier law firm in New York.

While learning as much as possible about executive compensation and corporate governance, he noticed dozens of executive compensation consulting firms separating from larger companies. After seeing those newly formed independent entities find success, he thought about doing the same thing with a law firm.

He founded Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates a little over ten years ago. Since then, he’s developed numerous relationships with some of the largest corporations in the world. Jeremy Goldstein always handles the biggest transactions, including those involving AT&T Wireless, Sears, Kmart, Bank One, and South African Breweries. He’s achieved such great success; he’s been listed as a top executive compensation attorney.

Throughout his career, he’s been torn between working with clients and traveling the country to give speeches and writing articles about executive compensation and corporate governance. It’s one of the few aspects of his career that he finds difficult.

Jeremy Goldstein is also quite the charitable contributor. He donates to several local charities but devotes much of his time and energy to Fountain House, a local foundation dedicated to the recovery of those suffering from mental illnesses. His work with Fountain House primarily consists of setting up fundraisers and raising awareness.

Fountain House began as a small support group made up of people struggling with mental illness in 1944. Since 1944, Fountain House has been dedicated to not only helping men and women with mental illness but changing the way others perceive them. The biggest problem dealing with mental illness today is the stigma around mental illness.

It’s Fountain House’s mission to improve the quality of life for everyone suffering from a mental illness. All their work means nothing if they can’t get more communities to support those attempting to rejoin society after receiving treatment. In many places, people won’t seek treatment because they’re afraid of being shunned or humiliated.

Mental illness is a bigger problem than most are willing to admit. The World Health Organization predicts 25 percent of all people will experience a mental illness issue at some point in their lives. More than 20 percent of adults need to seek treatment every year.
