GellerCares

Giving Back to Make an Impact

Our GellerCares initiative allows our professionals to volunteer their time—whether off-site, on-site at our New York-based office, or virtually—through dozens of community-focused programs held every year. Our areas of focus include education, community revitalization, food relief, and community engagement.

Education

The mission of our education-focused programs is to support early access to education and literacy for underserved populations. As part of this effort, Geller & Company hosts career days and college prep seminars for high-performing students in low income areas, as well as a variety of literacy programs for children.

Community Revitalization

We believe caring for the environment is an important aspect of supporting your community. As part of GellerCares, we participate in programs that focus on the beautification of gardens, schools, and community spaces.

Food Relief

Our GellerCares team arranges opportunities for our professionals to participate in meal preparation, matching programs, food collections, and on-site volunteering at New York City’s food banks.

Community Engagement

GellerCares offers our professionals many opportunities to give back to their community. These are just a few of the ways in which our team members are making an impact:

  • Backpack and school supply drives for New York City’s Title 1 schools
  • Clothing drives to support those re-entering the workforce
  • Holiday toy and necessary items drives for those living in shelters and transitional housing
  • Drives and campaigns in response to current events and natural disasters, including heightened support for first responders and those in our community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Letter writing campaigns for veterans and first responders
  • Volunteer support across a diverse section of non-profit events, including eldercare, the LGBTQ+ community, the arts, and animal rescue

Service Week

Every year, Geller & Company offers our professionals the opportunity to volunteer at events during the work day. It is our way of providing our professionals with an opportunity to get involved in a more accessible way. During the 2020 Service Week, hands-on projects were supported by 250 professionals all in the office, during working hours.
