Goldman School of Public Policy - UC Berkeley


San Francisco natives Richard and Rhoda Goldman established their family foundation in 1951. Since then, the Goldman Fund has given away more than $680 million in support of a variety of charitable causes locally in the Bay Area, nationally and internationally.

In 1990, Richard and Rhoda Goldman established the Goldman Environmental Prize, honoring grassroots environmentalists from around the world. Richard, who passed away November 29, 2010, was a civic leader who played an active role in the nonprofit community, as did his late wife, Rhoda, who passed away in 1996.
