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.

  • Baltimore’s Promise Collaborative

    Baltimore’s Promise is a collective impact effort focused on creating a continuum of care and services for all youth across their life span to improve outcomes for them. It is focused on building a culture of shared accountability and collaboration across Baltimore City. The mission of Baltimore’s Promise is to coordinate strategy, identify quality programs, support alignment activities, establish shared measures for meaningful results, build public will, and advance policy on behalf of Baltimore City’s youth. Baltimore’s Promise has five ambitious goals for the City’s youth as they transition along each part of the cradle to career continuum: babies are born healthy; children enter Kindergarten ready to succeed in school; children and youth achieve at grade level in school; youth graduate high school prepared for the next step without remediation; and youth earn quality post-secondary credentials or receive training and are career-ready. This grant provided core-operating support.

  • Healthy Neighborhoods, Inc.

    For approaching 20 years, Healthy Neighborhoods has developed market-driven strategies to benefit Baltimore’s middle neighborhoods–areas with significant assets but stagnant or undervalued real estate beginning to age without improvement. By investing in these properties and their improvement, providing loans to homebuyers and homeowners, marketing neighborhood assets and strengthening resident capacity, HNI works to stabilize and grow middle neighborhoods. This grant provided core operating support.

The goal is to create a peaceful Baltimore, where all residents have the skills to manage and transform conflict and have access to and use community-based conflict resolution programs.
