Employees are a key component of our company’s Corporate Citizenship initiatives. Whether tutoring students in math, preparing care packages for our service members or cleaning up our waterways, the passions of our employees help transform our communities.

We encourage employees to support the local community through volunteerism and we reward their efforts with Community Service Grants to the organization for which they volunteer. Eligible employees must volunteer 40+ hours a year with a school or a 501(c)(3) non-profit throughout the yearly grant cycle.

In addition, Northrop Grumman offers the Excellence in Volunteerism Awards. This volunteer recognition program honors individuals who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and commitment through consistent volunteerism. Eligible organizations are encouraged to nominate a Northrop Grumman employee or team of employees for an Excellence in Volunteerism Award. Nominations are reviewed by an independent partner and 10 organizations are selected each year to receive a $5,000 grant on behalf of the employee or team.
