Community & Volunteer Engagement
A Million Makes a Difference is part of Lockheed Martin’s commitment to making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. Our dedicated employees donate countless volunteer hours in support of causes they care about. Our goal is to reach 1 million hours of collective service in 2014. To highlight the volunteerism impact our employees are making throughout the world, Lockheed Martin’s “A Million Makes a Difference” campaign will feature stories from across the United States and international locations, with a focus each month on a different region. To see what our employees have been up to on the West Coast, check out the stories below!
As part of the campaign, Lockheed Martin is rewarding employees that volunteer a minimum of nine hours and those that volunteer 100 or more hours. These employees could win a donation to a charity of their choice that also aligns with our charitable contributions policy.
Lockheed Martin invests more than $25 million worldwide to nonprofit organizations, focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and military/veteran causes. In addition, employees donate $20 million annually to various organizations through workplace-giving campaigns and volunteer an average of 1 million hours each year.
