GE Transportation began raising funds for Make-A-Wish®
in 1993 through an annual fundraising event. In its 23 years, the event, now called Bids for Kids, has raised more than $876,000 for our local chapter. All of the proceeds reflect donations made by GE employees.
Additionally, employees have been very generous with Make-A-Wish – when they are recognized for good performance, employees designate their monetary recognition gifts to help support our mission. Employees can be seen volunteering their time at Make-A-Wish events as well. More than 195 children have seen their wishes fulfilled thanks to GE's generosity.
