Emergenetics International has a rich history of giving back to the communities where we live and work. We are dedicated to helping people- whether it’s through learning or making sure basic needs are met.
Each year in the United States, we give over 10% of our gross revenue to non-profits. In addition to financial support, our North American office comes together to volunteer their time in support of many of Denver area organizations. Past service days have included Metro CareRing, Florence Crittenton Services of Colorado, the Ronald McDonald House of Aurora, the SAME (So All May Eat) Caf? in downtown Denver, the Western Union Foundation, the Pinnacol Foundation, the Susan G. Komen foundation, Community First of Omaha, the Mennonite Disaster Relief Fund and Cancer League of Colorado.
Our founder, Dr. Geil Browning, who began her career as a school teacher, extends her interest in children- as a founding board member of the Kenyan Children Foundation whose mission is to provide transformational experiences for Americans through compassionate involvement with Kenyan street children. Together with her husband, Armistead, she regularly organizes and leads groups to Nairobi, Kenya where they work with orphaned and destitute children, many of whom are HIV positive. Dr. Browning is a long-time supporter of The STEP Foundation, FGI Spirit, the John T. Langan Professorship at the University of Nebraska.
In Asia, the team at Emergenetics International-Asia (EGI-A) dedicate their Corporate Social Responsibility to developing the human capital of non-profit organizations based in Singapore and beyond. Over the years, the team, together with Asia-based Emergenetics associates, have contributed to the development of individual and team effectiveness of volunteer leaders and management teams at such organizations as Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund which reaches out to children in need to provide them with resources to do well in school and beyond, Asian Women’s Welfare Association (AWWA) which supports over 5,000 caregivers, elderly frail, disabled persons and disadvantaged families, and Love Qinghai Tibet Rescue & Aid which provides disaster relief and humanitarian aid in remote areas of China.
Emergenetics International-Asia Pacific CEO, Terence Quek, and COO, Deborah Chew, are founding members of Project Happy Feet. Project Happy Feet is a non-profit organization that empowers lives through education and training. Believing that ‘all children should have access to education’, the team at EGI-A adopted Project Happy Feet as its beneficiary and supports the organization by volunteering for it, and also to underwrite the operational cost of the organization so that 100% of public funds raised could be channeled directly to education and training related programs. With the support of the EGI-A Team, Project Happy Feet has raised and channeled in access of SGD500,000 to benefit underprivileged children and youths in Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal, India, Philippines and Singapore.
