ARLINGTON, VA, May 17, 2022 ̶ Leonardo DRS, Inc. is excited to announce its new partnership with the Navy SEAL Foundation (NSF), America’s premier non-profit organization serving the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community.
The partnership is part of Leonardo DRS’ ongoing commitment to America’s military service members, their families, and our veterans. Leonardo DRS provides sponsorships and grants for causes that support our U.S. Armed Forces, the health and education of children, and community and civic initiatives to improve the quality of life in and around our Leonardo DRS communities.
Founded in 2000, NSF is one of the highest-rated charities in America. The Foundation provides critical support for the warriors, veterans, and families of NSW through a comprehensive and impactful collection of over thirty programs under its five Pillars of Support: Strength, Resilience, Health, Education, and Community.
“As a company that works closely with Navy SEALs to support their requirements to stay safe on duty, Leonardo DRS also recognizes that off of the battlefield, these individuals and their families also require special assistance,” said Mike Coulter, senior vice president, Leonardo DRS Corporate Business Development. “I know all of our employees are proud to support this new relationship with the Navy SEAL Foundation and its mission to provide needed care for the warriors, veterans, and families of Naval Special Warfare,” Coulter said.
NSF’s programs are tailored specifically to the NSW community and are designed to enhance and enable optimal health, reinforce family and community connections, and provide opportunities for education and successful career transition. The Foundation also supports over 500 family members of those who have died while on active duty or from wounds sustained during their active-duty service.
“We are honored to partner with Leonardo DRS, a company that is effective and driven to provide the best defense solutions for its customers while simultaneously supporting causes that reflect their core values of integrity, excellence, innovation, and inclusion,” said Chris Irwin, Communications Director for NSF. “We appreciate their commitment to our mission and look forward to working together in support of the warriors and families of NSW.”
