Giving Back to Our Community

We are committed to supporting our local communities with the full support of our staff through volunteer work in every town we serve

Giving Back To Our Community

In addition to the many hours that our employees volunteer throughout a given year, at GCI we have established two primary methods for “giving back” financially to our communities as well: An internal donations committee and the Geneseo Communications Charitable Foundation.  Read about some of the organizations we have donated to.

Donations Committee

At GCI, we regularly receive donation requests from organizations within the community. Our donations committee is always excited for their monthly meetings where they get to review and approve donation requests! Here are a few of the organizations that have benefited from our Donations Committee Abilities Plus Adopt-a-Family Aisle of Flags American Red Cross Annawan After Prom Annawan Close-Up Program Annawan Food Pantry Apex Volleyball Club Boy Scout Troop 100 Boy Scout Troop 131 Braveheart Children’s Advocacy Cambridge After Prom Cambridge Fire Department Cambridge Main Street Donation to Annual Toy Drive Eagle Scout Fellowship of Christian Athletes Friends of Hennepin Canal Gen Air Fly-in Breakfst Gen-Air Park Geneseo After Prom Geneseo AG Alumni Geneseo Alliance of Ladies Geneseo Art League Geneseo Chamber of Commerce Geneseo FFA Geneseo Fire Protection District Geneseo Food Pantry Geneseo G-Sox Baseball Geneseo High School – Baseball Boosters Geneseo High School – Softball Geneseo High School – Volleyball Geneseo Kiwanis Geneseo Library Reading Program Geneseo Maple Leafs Travel Boosters Geneseo Performing Arts (GPAC) Geneseo PTA Geneseo Public Library Geneseo Soccer Boosters Geneseo Women’s Club Geneseo Youth Baseball & Softball Geneseo Youth Bowling Geneseo Youth Football Golf Boosters Good Samaritan Green Xtreme Softball Growth, Inc.
