Supporting Our Military and Veterans

We take great pride in serving those who defend our freedom. Through volunteerism, employee giving and charitable giving we stand in support of our veterans, service members and their families. Our charitable efforts are focused on five strategic pillars which include:

Wounded Warriors: Programs to address health, healing and recovery

Families: Initiatives to strengthen families and address low-income concerns

Homelessness: Services and housing for homeless veterans

Employment: Programs to train and employ transitioning service members and wounded warriors and their spouses

Appreciation: Efforts to recognize the contributions of active duty military and their families

Here are a few of our partners which provide services and programs for military and veterans:

logoTragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS)

TAPS provides resources and support to those who have lost a loved one in the military. This includes peer based emotional support, community based care, a 24/7 national military survivor helpline and more. Northrop Grumman is proud to partner with TAPS and sponsor their National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp held annually in Washington, D.C. In preparation for the event, employees wrote notes of support for grieving family members which were added to the “Survivor Tree” displayed at the seminar. The “Survivor Tree” represents the pear tree that survived the 9/11 World Trade Center attack which was rehabilitated and transplanted at the memorial site. In addition, employees assembled 1,500 backpacks for the weekend event and participated in the Good Grief Camp Zone engaging the children in arts, crafts and games.

Homelessness is a national crisis for our veterans. In partnership with LISC, Northrop Grumman has committed funding for financial, technical and policy support to help create permanent, supportive housing projects that provide critical services to low income veterans.

logoAmerican Corporate Partners (ACP)

Northrop Grumman has been a proud partner of ACP since 2013. ACP is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping post 9/11 veterans and spouses of service members find their next careers through one-on-one mentoring, networking and online career advice. Northrop Grumman leaders volunteer to serve as mentors to U.S. veterans and provide them career development guidance and networking opportunities. To date, 167 employees have shared their expertise and provided career advice with 314 ACP protégés.

logoUnited Through Reading

One of the most difficult things a child can experience is having a parent deployed to a war zone. United Through Reading helps keep military families together through the personal connection of a parent reading a recorded bedtime story to a child. Watch this short video to learn more about our support.

logoSoldier On

Our outreach goes beyond the United States and into global communities where our employees work and live. Partnerships with organizations such as Soldier On, a veteran service organization based in Australia, provides veteran programming in health and wellbeing, psychological services, education, employment and social connections.

logoOperation Injured Military Pursuing Assisted Career Transition (Operation IMPACT)

Operation IMPACT is a unique and award-winning program within Northrop Grumman focused on assisting severely wounded service members as they transition from the military to a private-sector career. Should a service member be unable to work due to the severity of his/her injuries, the same support will be extended to a member of the service member’s immediate family who may be seeking employment.

A dedicated core team provides program management, personalized placement assistance, community outreach and workplace accommodations for severely injured service members transitioning to civilian employment. The program has expanded to include a Network of Champions to provide additional resources for the placement of candidates with more than 100 companies.

Areas of focus include workforce transition, veteran employee support, networking and community engagement.
