GE Foundation, the philanthropic organization of GE, is committed to transforming our communities and shaping the diverse workforce of tomorrow by leveraging the power of GE. We are developing skills by bringing innovative learning in community health globally and STEM education, scaling what works, and building sustainable solutions. We are inspiring others to act by connecting GE people with communities through matching gifts and United Way, leading on emerging issues such as the opiate crisis, and convening community leaders to maximize our impact. The GE Foundation is powered by the generosity and talent of our employees, who have a strong commitment to their communities.
