Frontrunners in Virtual Volunteering

Generus was founded by Jamie Larsen in 2018. At first, Generus’s goal was to connect small and midsize companies with volunteer opportunities that were usually limited to bigger businesses. Quickly, we realized virtual volunteering saved companies time and money. When COVID-19 moved many employees to remote and hybrid work models, Generus was already well-established in the world of remote volunteering. Our passion, knowledge, and connections, enabled us to become a leader in the field of virtual giving. Today, we continue to offer customized programs and packages that help connect teams, support non-profits, and promote company culture.

From Start to Finish

We Deliver Personalized Volunteer Experiences

Generus’s mission is threefold: give back to our communities through non-profit partners, encourage employee engagement, and create meaningful experiences. Our activities are designed with research backed methodology to help employees authentically build connection and positivity  for employees and their teams. 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.

Our Focus Areas are:

  • DEI Support
  • Health
  • Community
  • Environment

We’re Not Just a Company

We’re a Team

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 Responsibility. Additionally, we each support several causes, and we devote our personal and professional time to advocating for our charities. From prison reform to helping individuals who are unhoused, read more about what matters to us.
