Jacqueline “Jacky” Goh serves as the Chief Development Officer for the National LGBTQ Task Force. In this role, Jacky leads the Task Force’s fund development efforts and is responsible for strengthening the infrastructure needed to support and grow the organization’s budget through foundation, corporate, and individual donors, as well as other vital revenue streams.
As a queer Korean woman, Jacky has long understood the power and necessity of collective liberation. She recognizes the ways that she has benefitted from others who have fought to defend and protect her existence, and she has dedicated her career to paying it forward. In her previous role as Senior Director of Development for the Center for Employment Opportunities, she raised funds to support formerly incarcerated individuals in their reentry into the workforce. She was the Director of Strategic Growth at Define American, a culture change organization that uses the power of narrative to humanize conversations about immigrants. She has also raised funds to advance economic mobility, housing security, and health equity with her work at Restaurant Opportunities Center United, Esperanza Community Housing Corporation, and the Center for Youth Wellness.
Jacky has extensive experience with Board and donor engagement and strategic planning. She holds a Bachelors in Sociology and a master’s in clinical psychology with specializations in LGBT Affirmative Psychology and Applied Community Psychology from Antioch University.
Jacky lives in Los Angeles. She is an avid crossworder and a self-proclaimed “crazy cat companion” to two furry felines, Dummy (who is actually very smart) and Alby (who enjoys saying hello on Zoom calls).
