The Importance of Community Partnership

In 2013, Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) contributed more than $1.6 million to communities in and around facilities of its Aerospace Systems sector in El Segundo, CA, San Diego, CA, Palmdale, CA, St. Augustine, FL, Melbourne, FL, Bethpage, NY, and New Town, ND.

Northrop Grumman supported educational programs in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and math, in order to inspire students to pursue those fields of study in higher education. In particular, contributions were given to the Poway Unified School District, which in turn helped with STEM programs for many of the schools in 92127 and beyond. The company also supported programs that served U.S. troops and veterans, health and human services, and environmental initiatives.

In addition to corporate giving, employees also volunteered their time around the communities, including mentoring at local schools and raising money for the USO (United Service Organization). Employees held events such as sports tournaments, bake sales, tricycle races and silent auctions, to name a few.
