At Goldman Sachs, we believe that strong communities are the foundation of a prosperous society. Through our Impact Investing initiatives, we find innovative commercial solutions that help address social and civic challenges in communities across the United States.
Eligible not-for-profit organizations are invited to apply for funding from the Goldman Sachs Bank USA Community Development Grants Program. The grants program seeks to support community development programs that serve low- and moderate- income individuals or communities and address key community needs such as:
- Affordable housing
- Community services such as education, including financial education for youth and consumers
- Small business development
- Neighborhood revitalization
This year we are particularly interested in supporting programs related to consumer financial health, racial equity, and climate justice.
Community development programs must address community needs in one or more of the following geographies:
- New York: the five boroughs of New York City
- New Jersey: Hudson County, Essex County
- Utah: Salt Lake County, Summit County, Tooele County
This competitive process seeks to fund high impact, program-related grants, generally ranging from $25,000 to $150,000. Not-for-profits that are aligned with these programmatic and geographic guidelines are encouraged to apply.
To be considered for a grant, applicants must be domestic, non-profit, tax-exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
Application to the 2022 Goldman Sachs Bank USA Grants Program is now closed.
