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.

  • Tahirih Justice Center

    The Tahirih Justice Center exists to support courageous immigrant women and children who are survivors of gender-based violence–including human trafficking, domestic violence, sexual assault, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, and other crimes–who are seeking safety and justice. The immigrant survivors of gender based violence that Tahirih serves are particularly vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic because they lack healthcare, work low-wage hourly jobs, have no paid sick leave, and are ineligible for public benefits. With few agencies specializing in service to immigrant survivors, Tahirih staff are setting up emergency funds, increasing safety planning, educating clients in their native language, coordinating tele-mental health sessions, and responding to other requests expeditiously. This grant provided operating support for Tahirih’s Baltimore office.

  • Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC)

    Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) is dedicated to the creation of a nationwide network of multi-use trails that enhance the environment, transportation, economy, neighborhoods and people. RTC’s work is magnified in urban areas, where one mile of trail can completely redefine the livability of a community. More than just recreational amenities, trails create opportunities for active transportation and improved health and wellbeing as they connect people to jobs, schools, businesses, and their community. In Baltimore, RTC and the Baltimore Greenway Trails Coalition, comprising nearly sixty local organizations and agencies, seek to create a 35-mile world-class network of urban trails that link together diverse neighborhoods, cultural amenities, and outdoor resources. This grant provided core operating support.
