									GE Volunteers Foundation
2005 Annual Report

Good people doing great things
connect strengthen respond
Dear GE Friends,
What’s in a name? It’s a question important enough for poets to ponder.
We’d say a name — a good name — is an extremely valuable commodity. That’s why so much care and consideration
has gone into changing our name from Elfun Community Foundation to the GE Volunteers Foundation. As such, we will
continue to function as a non-profit public charity supporting the work of GE volunteers and helping GE people impacted
by natural disasters.
As a natural evolution of the rich heritage that had its roots in the 1928 establishment of the Elfun Society, our new
name reflects our commitment to bringing our family of members closer together, aligning it more closely in name
as well as nature, to the good work performed by the great people of GE.
The GE Volunteers Foundation is built on the proud tradition of the Elfuns. Both share one common factor: the
good people who lend their time, talent and treasure to support our efforts to meet local community needs.
In this report, you’ll read more about the initiatives GE volunteers are involved in — how one GE volunteer aiding survivors
needed to be rescued herself, how the everyday use of our volunteer credit card can buy a multitude of supplies for
unfunded volunteer projects, and how GE volunteers come together as “One GE – One Community” to make a difference.
These are just some of the thousands of examples of how your donations are helping our communities one project
at a time. Volunteer efforts range from the humble to the heroic. All are important. All add strength to the fabric of the
GE Volunteers Foundation and have enabled us to enjoy another record-breaking year in 2005.
What’s in a name? An enduring tradition of connecting GE people to the needs of the communities in which we live
and work, strengthening GE’s commitment to volunteer efforts around the globe, and responding whenever and
wherever we find a need.
Thank you for your continued investment in the hopes and futures of your communities, GE family members,
and yourselves.

Michael Steinfeld, Development Officer, was delighted when he
learned that the Bell Gardens Library, part of the County of Los
Angeles Public Library system, was to be the recipient of a $10,000
GE Volunteers Foundation grant. But what he did not expect
were the additional benefits that would come about as a result.

“Our original intent was to refurbish the satellite library, which
serves nine schools in an underprivileged part of the city, but
 thanks to the local interest generated by the grant, the project
    has grown into a major refurbishment of the Bell Gardens
    Library,” says Michael. Dozens of other community organi-

As volunteering expanded globally, and the number and size
of worthwhile projects kept growing, more and more requests
for funding poured in. To meet this increased need, GE created
Sharing the Gold to provide another source of funds to sup-
port the global activities of GE volunteers.

Money generated from credit card royalties is available as
working capital for GE volunteer projects, and goes direct-
