Employees are a key component of building partnerships for stronger communities. Our employee volunteerism and outreach initiatives align with our strategic focus areas: K-12 STEM education, support to our military and veterans, health and human services and environmental stewardship. Whether tutoring students in math, preparing care packages for our troops, contributing to a company-sponsored drive or volunteering with a local nonprofit organization, the passions of our employees help transform our communities.
Giving back to the local community is a great way to meet and network with other employees, team build, learn about commitments the company has made to strengthen our communities and develop leadership skills. Our one-stop resource for employee volunteerism, Volunteer1NG, can be found on the My Giving portal. Volunteer1NG allows employees to look for volunteer events in their area. In addition, while in the My Giving portal, employees may create volunteer events and log their volunteer hours to qualify for a Community Service Grant.
Northrop Grumman provides Community Service Grants on behalf of employees who volunteer with a school or a 501(c)(3) nonprofit throughout the year. To qualify for a Community Service Grant, employees must volunteer 40+ hours during the annual grant cycle with one eligible organization and log their volunteer hours in the My Giving portal. The grant is $400 and will be provided directly to the nonprofit organization or public school.
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 annually to receive a $5,000 grant from Northrop Grumman on behalf of the employee or team.
