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.

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
