About Us

Serving Charities and Congregations Since 1976

GSB’s mission is to provide ethical, professional and customized service directed to helping the client build a productive and continuing development program.

 

Three Things We Bring To You

One: Passion
We have a passion for philanthropy – the art of giving and asking for gifts. We’ve been along to see individual lives changed for the better, institutions and congregations strengthened, communities healed and society made better.

Our passion is also to help people like you – leaders and workers – develop this same passion for raising funds for the worthy causes of the world. We approach our work as your guide on your journey with a passion that’s contagious.

Two: Urgency
We understand the urgent unmet human need which your organization seeks to address: food, clothing, shelter, health, education, spiritual development, artistic expression, natural disasters, counsel and comfort, poverty, crisis, mentoring, and others.

We understand how urgently you need funds to carry out your work, to do what you can to meet these human needs.

This sense of urgency is ever present in us as we work with you to build development programs that will grow and live on, gaining momentum and dollars to hasten you on your journey of responding to people’s needs.

Three: Mission
As we journey together your mission becomes our mission.

Your mission –the cause which brought your organization into being – becomes paramount for us too. We do everything we can to make you stronger, more effective, more productive, more flexible, and more equipped to reach your mission destination.

Together we join in another mission, a very personal mission… it’s to help people become more generous.

This common mission empowers individuals to become more aware of the human needs in their communities, country and world… to be sensitive to neighbors who need help… to become involved with causes that bind us together as a country and lift our spirits.

Together we guide people to discover the joy of giving and the joy of asking for gifts.
