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.

  • Springboard Collaborative

    For nearly a decade, Springboard Collaborative has coached teachers and parents to set goals together, practice evidence-based reading strategies, measure progress, and celebrate success. Springboard Collaborative was preparing to launch after-school programming at 23 Baltimore City public schools when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The organization quickly pivoted to provide digital resources for families and training for teachers to engage with families virtually. This grant provided funds to enable Springboard Collaborative to offer virtual summer learning to 1,000 students across 14 schools in Baltimore City.

  • Baltimore Racial Justice Action

    Baltimore Racial Justice Action (BRJA) was formed in 2003 as an all-volunteer organization, providing a place for
    individuals who were committed to racial justice and actively engaged in anti-racism work to come together. By 2015 BRJA added to its activities racial equity consultation with organizations and institutions who were seeking to become more racially diverse and to understand how to move toward racial justice in their mission, programs, and culture. Since then BRJA has worked with a wide range of non-profit organizations, mostly in the Baltimore-Washington area. This grant provided funds for a financial management consultant to support BRJA’s growth in offering more racial justice education to the general public as well as exploration of new partnership opportunities.

Health Corps staff will be deployed to address critical COVID-19 needs in Baltimore’s most vulnerable communities, performing three key functions: public health education outreach, contact tracing, and care coordination and social support.
