Founded in 1869, The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities, and investment management firm that provides a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and individuals.
Goldman Sachs invests in innovative solutions to help bring economic growth, stability and opportunity to communities around the world. Since 2001, through its global philanthropic efforts and Urban Investment Group, the firm has deployed more than $6 billion in investments and grants to grow businesses, foster entrepreneurship and job creation, and revitalize cities and communities around the world. Goldman Sachs works with hundreds of academic and nonprofit partners and is routinely among the corporate philanthropic leaders identified in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
Goldman Sachs has been a loyal supporter of Grand St. Settlement’s work in communities in the Lower East Side and Brooklyn for over a decade, most noticeably through its annual sponsorship of the agency’s annual event, Taste of the Lower East Side, as well as through support from the firm’s Community TeamWorks initiative. More recently, Goldman Sachs has also made a $300mm investment in Essex Crossing, a project transforming the largest stretch of undeveloped city-owned land in Manhattan below 96th Street into a vibrant, mixed-use, multi-generational community, of which Grand St. Settlement is the lead community partner. The support of Goldman Sachs continues to help Grand St. Settlement connect New Yorkers to opportunities that inspire, services that keep families strong, and programs that bring communities closer.
