By America's Charities on November 21, 2016
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation has named the winners of its annual Corporate Citizenship Awards, recognizing eight business for making a significant, positive impact on the communities and societies in which they operate, and America's Charities is proud to see one of our deserving clients, Lockheed Martin, on the list.
“Businesses act as a powerful force for good in their communities every single day, and these winners reflect some of the best social and community initiatives within the business sector,” said Marc DeCourcey, senior vice president for the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Corporate Citizenship Center. “It is an honor to showcase the contribution of these eight companies, who are setting the bar for excellence in corporate citizenship.”
Lockheed Martin was presented with the "Best Commitment to Education Program" award, for their initiative to increase student exposure to STEM. Lockheed Martin funded the pilot program for Imagine Science. Imagine Science provides students with experiences that help cultivate an interest in STEM in a sustained way. America's Charities supports multiple Lockheed Martin business area workplace giving campaigns, which give employees the opportunity to give to their favorite charities including funds that support STEM, and featured their Lockheed Martin Aeronautics business area in a recent white paper.
