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 Sixth Branch

    The Sixth Branch (T6B) was founded in 2010 by a group of veterans reintegrating into civilian life after service in America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. T6B’s founders noticed a need to provide an outlet for veterans with a desire to continue serving to become leaders in their communities and to help solve neighborhood level problems. T6B’s mission is to utilize the leadership and skills of military veterans to execute aggressive community service initiatives. From its origin as a community service club for veterans, T6B has grown to host approximately 3,000 volunteers per year from all walks of life every Tuesday through Friday and on the second Saturday of each month. T6B follows the guidance of the communities in which it serves, identifying their needs in coordination with BUILD community organizers and following through with the pragmatic approach of veteran-led culture. T6B currently stewards more than 18 acres of green space in East Baltimore across four neighborhoods; provides volunteer support to three elementary schools; and brings together neighbors, veterans, corporate partners, and Baltimoreans of all skills and abilities to improve neighborhoods in Baltimore City. This grant provided core operating support.
