In 1835, Matthias Baldwin donated money to establish a school for African-American children in Philadelphia and continued to pay the teachers’ salaries out of his own pocket for years thereafter. Baldwin was an outspoken supporter for the abolition of slavery in the United States.
Baldwin was a member of the 1837 Pennsylvania State Constitutional Convention and emerged as a defender of voting rights for the state’s black male citizens. One of his last philanthropic efforts was the donation of 10% of his company’s income to the Civil War Christian Mission in the early 1860s.
