Our Grantees

The Goldseker Foundation makes grants primarily in the areas of community development, education, and strengthening the nonprofit sector. We seek opportunities to invest in the people, ideas, and institutions that promote the long-term economic and social progress of our city.

The foundation remains a directly engaged and active partner with our grantees in their efforts to revive and sustain vibrant neighborhoods, strengthen and market great schools, and expand and improve the effectiveness of their programs.

  • The Inner Harbor Project

    The Inner Harbor Project was founded in 2012 with the goal of understanding and ameliorating the root causes of tensions between teenagers, police, retailers and visitors at the Inner Harbor. After two years of observation and research, the Project’s founder, working with Baltimore City high school students, determined that much of the tension and youth violence stemmed from young people feeling excluded and unwelcome in the Inner Harbor. In response, the Inner Harbor Project developed and implemented five youth-led programs to assuage tension and increase harmony in the Inner Harbor. Juvenile arrests in the Inner Harbor subsequently decreased 58 percent (from 2012-2015). This Management Assistance Grant provided funds for a strategic planning consultant to determine how the organization will grow in the future, including whether to expand its geographic focus to other public spaces in the city.
