Our Mission

Since making our first grants in 1976, the Goldseker Foundation has been a civic partner with Baltimore area institutions, nonprofit organizations, private and public sector leaders, and neighborhoods in the region’s communities, especially in Baltimore City.

Over four decades, we have sought to develop long-term personal and institutional relationships to advance our core mission: attracting, engaging, encouraging, investing in, and sustaining good ideas and people, toward a socially and economically healthy future.

Our Goals for Baltimore

  • Position Baltimore as an excellent place to live, learn, and invest

  • Retain and attract a wide range of educated, talented people from Baltimore and around the world

  • Develop opportunities for a large and growing middle class population
