GENERAL ELECTRIC President: Jeff Immelt
General Electric has launched several initiatives to solve health and education problems globally. Developing Health Globally is the GE Foundation’s project to improve healthcare services for some portion of the world’s most vulnerable populations in sub-saharan Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia. The Developing Futures Education Program supports activities to enhance the equity and quality of K–12 government funded education in the U.S. This system has contributed more than $225 million and thousands of hours to support student accomplishment and professional improvement for instructors in K-12 state funded schools over the U.S. Also, the GE Foundation made Developing Health through various beneficial organizations with free, charitable group healthcare focuses. Since then, the GE Foundation has put a huge number of dollars in the project, which backs GE’S initiative to convey better and less expensive medicinal services to more people.
“The GE Foundation focuses on health, education and disaster relief,” wrote Deb Elam, president of the GE Foundation, in her most recent letter to shareholders. “Additionally, over the past 60 years, the GE family has given more than $1 billion to charity through the GE Foundation Matching Gifts Program. The concept of corporate matching gift programs started with GE.”
