As a community mutual bank, our success depends on a thriving community.

For that reason, you’ll find our team members have a strong sense of volunteerism and community engagement. You'll find us swinging hammers at Habitat for Humanity builds, staffing booths at local events large and small, and serving on over 60 nonprofit boards of directors.

We also support our communities financially. Our sponsorships include financial literacy programs, American Red Cross blood drives, summer concerts on historic town greens and a variety of major fundraising events held by local nonprofits. We support carnivals, festivals, and fairs such as the Guilford Fair, an event that's taken place every year since 1859! That's 16 years before GSB's own founding. We're proud to contribute to community events that have such rich history.

community foundations

Creating a great future for our communities means we need to make an investment now. GSB has charitable funds at local foundations, which, unlike typical donations, allow the respective foundations to grow the money and draw from it as needed, helping more people over time.

GSB has established charitable funds with four local organizations:

• Guilford Foundation

• Branford Community Foundation

• Madison Foundation

• Community Foundation of Middlesex County

The funds help provide scholarships for outstanding high school seniors, as well as support and services for low-income families.

As a community bank, we're interdependent with the communities we serve.  When our community thrives, we thrive.  Our goal is active engagement. From the day-to-day involvement of our employees to our financial response to community needs, the total impact of our passionate community bank is measurable.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We donate to a wide range of worthy causes. We can't support every organization, so we select those where our funds will make the most impact.

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

  • Community foundations of Branford Community, 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
