Northrop Grumman Philanthropy - representatives from Volunteers from America received a $15,000 check from Northrop Grumman

At Northrop Grumman, we strive to be a community partner of choice. Through dynamic partnerships, Northrop Grumman’s philanthropy programs help to address the challenges facing our nation and our local communities and strive to meet the diverse needs of the people of those communities.

To make the most effective use of our resources and expertise, we have identified priority issues and key initiatives for investment in local communities through the Northrop Grumman Corporate Contributions program. Our main focus is science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and we partner with local organizations that provide unique programming to inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers and technicians. We also provide support to programs that support our troops and veterans, health and human services and the environment. During times of national disaster, Northrop Grumman often provides funding to organizations that are responding to local needs.

Aid to Higher Education grants enhance STEM programs and contribute to activities that support our relationships with college and university partners. These grants provide funding for scholarships, student organizations and STEM programs and projects.

The Northrop Grumman Foundation is committed to supporting unique, diverse and sustainable national-level STEM programming. Additionally, we support our employees contributions to qualified educational institutions through the Northrop Grumman Foundation Matching Gifts for Education program.

We provide an opportunity for our employees to support their communities and the issues they care about through the Employees Charity Organization of Northrop Grumman (ECHO). To manage your contributions or become a member of ECHO, eligible employees can join now and start weekly contributions.
