For more than a century, volunteerism has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity as well as an organizational effort. We coordinate our resources — including products, matching gifts, grants and people — to create responses tailored to local and individual challenges. Today, the ultimate measure of GE's business is found in the improvements to the lives touched by our work.

GE Volunteers

GE coordinates volunteer efforts company-wide by keeping a close eye on societal needs and inviting all employees to build stronger communities where we live and work. Our employees volunteer over 1 million hours of community service every year, discovering opportunities through our online Volunteer Portal or in their own neighborhoods. And during Global Community Days, we coordinate our efforts company-wide to address urgent projects around the world.

GE Volunteers Foundation

The GE Volunteers Foundation strengthens the communities where we live and work by partnering with local charitable organizations worldwide to address key needs and opportunities. Through hands-on commitment in more than 41 countries and grants made possible through the donations of our GE family, the foundation has supported senior centers, children with autism, literacy for low-income communities, neglected urban spaces and many other worthy programs.
