At GSB, banking and philanthropy go hand in hand.

We're proud to support worthy causes in the community. Although we can't contribute to every organization, we take a long, hard look at where our funds could best be used, and give accordingly. We provide funds to community foundations that support low-income families and scholarships to encourage local youth who are active in their communities. Our scholarship fund gives a boost each year to outstanding high school students in Guilford, Madison, Branford, and Old Saybrook. We support a wide range of causes and nonprofits, both through financial contributions and the efforts of our volunteers.

Recently, we donated nearly $300,000 to the local community and supported more than 200 community organizations.

Some of the needs we support include (but are not limited to):

  • Community foundations supporting Branford, Guilford, Madison, and Middlesex County
  • Homelessness and low-income housing
  • Soup kitchens and pantries
  • Education and mentoring
  • Performing arts
  • Museums and libraries
  • Historic preservation
  • Special needs organizations
  • Rotary and civic organizations
