Our Story

The seed of TEN4GOOD was planted in 2011 after Jennifer attended a conference about dreaming big. She dreamed of creating a crowdfunding organization that could leverage the multiplying effects of a community of givers who were passionate about caring for people in need all around the world. The following year Jennifer traveled to Africa on a mission trip, married Jason, and the roots of TEN4GOOD began to grow. The next decade included a journey through adoption, growing partnerships with global charitable organizations, two for-profit businesses, and two more babies. As our family grew, so did the dream of TEN4GOOD. In early 2023 the vision of TEN4GOOD grew to encompass so much of our thoughts and conversations that our family of five was compelled to launch TEN4GOOD into the world on October 4th (10/4!) and we can’t wait to see how it grows!
