Generus was founded by Jamie Larsen in 2018. At first, Generus’s goal was to connect small and midsize companies with exciting volunteer opportunities that were usually limited to bigger businesses. Quickly, we realized that an easy way to save these companies time and money was by conducting virtual volunteer events. And when COVID-19 caused most companies to switch online, we were already well-established in the world of remote volunteering. Through our passion, knowledge, and connections, we soon became a leader in the field of virtual giving. Today, we continue to offer customized programs and packages that help connect teams, support charities, and promote company culture.
From Start to Finish
Generus’s mission is threefold: give back to charities, encourage employee engagement, and create unforgettable experiences. Our activities are scientifically designed to help employees feel good about themselves and their team, and each of our projects is customized to fit your employees’ interests and passions. When employees are given the opportunity to work on projects that matter to them, those employees feel valued, and their team grows stronger. And because Generus coordinates your event from beginning to end, you won’t have to worry about scheduling or technology issues. The “us” in Generus is there for a reason, and through our connections, expertise, and commitment, the “us” in your business will be fully realized.
We’re Not Just a Company
Generus prides itself on employee engagement and satisfaction, so it’s little surprise that our own employees are dedicated to volunteering and teamwork. Together, we have over 40 years of experience in Corporate Volunteering, Public Relations, Corporate Communications, and Corporate Social Responsibly. Additionally, we each support several causes, and we devote our personal and professional time to advocating for our charities. From prison reform to helping the homeless, read more about what matters to us.
