Giving Programs

Matching Gifts:

Over the past 60 years, the GE Foundation, employees and retirees have given more than $1 billion through our corporate Matching Gifts Program, which supports GE employees and U.S. retirees in their personal philanthropy/charitable giving by providing a one-to-one match.  Please refer to for further information or to participate in the Program.

United Way Giving Campaigns:

GE employees and retirees support nearly 600 United Way organizations and many other charities through the annual giving campaigns. With additional contributions and support from the GE Foundation and GE businesses, GE is consistently among the top United Way supporters.

In 2014, GE was recognized by United Way Worldwide as one of its “Outstanding Strategic Partners,” celebrating its long-term commitment, giving, volunteering, leadership and employee engagement, which is making a lasting impact to improve lives and communities.

GE Employees and Retirees:

United Way campaigns are typically run in the fall (~September–November). For specifics about your business or location, please contact your coordinator/captain. You can also log into the Pledge website for historical details, FAQs, customer support, or to make a pledge.
