About Us

Community Involvement

Philanthropic and charitable activities are an important part of the GTS culture. Our relocation to Detroit's historic Corktown in 2014 increased opportunities for community involvement and connect us more directly to Detroit's economic renewal.

The GTS Annual Open House always consists of a sizable charity donation to a nonprofit. In 2022, we presented two special checks to  Camp Casey, a nonprofit horseback riding program for children with cancer and rare blood disorders and to Alternatives for Girls, a nonprofit dedicated to helping homeless and high-risk girls. Both organizations are doing wonderful things in and outside of Metro Detroit.

This year, we’ll continue our Annual Hope for the Holidays campaign. We collect clothing, toys and canned food and then donate the goods to local charity partners for families in need during the holidays.

GTS employees are also involved in our giving by choosing a worthy charity for a company contribution. In 2022, charities chosen by our team included Operation Gratitude, Finn Fest, The Wave, Learn Play Score, and The Banbury Cross Equestrian Center.
