GF in the Community
During this challenging time, we are as committed as ever to our mission, vision and values. This includes our commitment to community involvement and support for the well-established programs and teams dedicated to enriching the lives of people around the globe. As ONEGF, we not only deliver technology for humanity, but also pride ourselves in giving to and supporting the communities we call home.
When it comes to philanthropy, employees in every major GF site make a difference by generously volunteering their time and donating goods and money to support a wide range of causes, helping to improve the quality of life in the communities we call home. Through our GlobalGives donation platform, GF has helped communities around the world respond to and rebuild from floods, hurricanes, wildfires and other disasters.

GF works with the community to offer various STEM programs for kids, such as trips to museums and planetariums.
