Advocacy and Community Outreach

GEP cares about communities in which we live and work. We share a common purpose: to help inspire positive, lasting change. Our core values of leadership and integrity underscore each action we take and every decision we make.
 
We honor the philanthropic spirit initiated by GEP founders in 1999 and are committed to charitable and worthwhile causes. Our employees are catalysts for change in their communities and take pride in providing community service. Our community outreach programs are focused on hunger, poverty, education and health.
 
So whether it’s hosting a day of reading and crafts for children, or partnering with organizations such as the United Way or American Cancer Society - we achieve great things when we work (and play) together.

Here are some recent examples of GEPSI (GEP Social Initiatives)

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research

The British Heart Foundation was founded in 1961 by a group of medical professionals wanting to fund extra research into the causes, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of heart and circulatory disease.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Research is the only UK charity solely dedicated to research into blood cancers, including  leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Their life-saving research is focused on finding causes, improving diagnosis and treatments, and running ground-breaking clinical trials for all blood cancer patients..

The Bowery Mission

The Bowery Mission has served homeless and hungry New Yorkers since 1879, when its neighborhood came to define the term "skid row."

Once known as a soup kitchen, The Bowery Mission is sometimes referred to as the busiest "restaurant" in New York City, serving more than 900 meals per day to poor and homeless men, women, and children and more recently, the unemployed who are doing everything possible to make ends meet.

Turkish Philanthropy Funds

Turkish Philanthropy Funds envisions just and sustainable communities where women and girls have equal access to opportunities and participate in every aspect of life; where all individuals, regardless of gender, religion or physical impairment benefit from an equitable and empowering education system; and where diversity is respected and nurtured. That is what Turkish Philanthropy Funds is working to realize.

In 2012 GEP employees sprung into action and raised $1600 to help Turkey's eastern province Van which was hit by a 7.2 devastating earthquake.
