Genworth and its employees are committed to improving the communities where we live and work by investing in employee passions and being a catalyst for community change. Established in 2005, the Genworth Foundations has given back more than $35 million to non-profits serving our communities.
The Genworth Foundation provides grants to global non-profits that are addressing key social issues, promoting collaboration and partnership, and making sustainable long-term impacts. Our focus areas are those that align with our business, including affordable housing, homelessness, healthy aging, and supporting caregivers.
Employees make a difference year round through ongoing volunteer projects. Community residents often see Genworth employees out mentoring youth, delivering meals to homebound seniors or assisting in the construction of affordable housing. In 2016, employees volunteered 16,000 hours across the globe.
While employees continually make a difference year round, all employees come together each June for our Global Month of Service. Reaching out and giving back to our communities is a unifying experience that connects employees from all business locations for one common goal – making a difference! In June 2016, 1,100 Genworth employees completed 6,000 service hours around the world during the Company’s 8th annual Global Month of Service. Throughout the month, Genworth volunteers reached out to their local communities, participated in 128 service projects and served 86 organizations overall.
