GTE Foundation

About the GTE Foundation

Established in 2003, the GTE Financial Charitable Foundation provides financial support to non-profit charitable agencies, community organizations, and members of our community. 

In 2012, the GTE Scholarship Foundation was proudly able to award $30,000 to deserving students that are active in our community and show promise of becoming future leaders. 

The Foundation believes that giving back is not only integral to running a successful business, it is part of our responsibility as Tampa Bay residents who work, play and grow within our diverse community.

Who qualifies for a financial grant?

The Foundation supports charitable organizations whose missions align with GTE Financial’s focuses of:

  • Financial Literacy – Organizations who support education in the areas of money management, investing, saving, tax planning and retirement. From the basics of money introduced in elementary school to retirees learning about Social Security and Medicare, GTE believes that financial literacy throughout every life stage is essential to fostering a stronger and happier society.

  • Environmental Sustainability – Organizations who support the enhancement of our ecosystem and/or the reduction of negative human impact on the environment, or organizations that have formalized education focused on these subjects. Environmental sustainability is about using our natural resources conscientiously and in innovative ways to help ensure the next generations’ ability to meet their needs and enjoy a beautiful environment.

  • Homeownership – Organizations that provide assistance with the homeownership process in the form of education or down payment assistance, to also include programs that help provide housing. The economic vitality of cities and communities is directly linked to housing market conditions. We believe it is part of our responsibility to help future homeowners make informed and confident decisions.
