GRS mailing list:


Once in a lifetime, a community builds a synagogue, and you can play a part.

Every pledge is valued, greatly appreciated, and needed. Please consider a meaningful gift in light of your ability to build our synagogue. Capital campaign gifts are used specifically to the new building and the GRS endowment.

Please let us know your preferred donor opportunity by contacting Stephanie Glaser, GRS Executive Director at 203-629-0018 or emailing Stephanie.Glaser@GRS.org. In addition, please inform us how you would like your name(s) to appear on the list of Capital Campaign donors. Pledges of $3,000 or more can be funded over two years; pledges of $6,000 or more can be funded over three years. Please contact us directly if you wish to donate appreciated securities.

Appreciated securities held more than 12 months, provide a double tax benefit by:

  • Avoiding capital gains taxes that would be paid if the stocks were sold.
  • Receiving a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the asset at the time of the gift, not its original purchase price. Please contact your financial advisor or accountant to understand precise benefits for you.

With great appreciation, we thank you.
