At Leonardo DRS, we believe in being a good corporate citizen. Our employees volunteer thousands of hours in time and talent annually in support of many charitable initiatives throughout the world.
As part of the commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, Leonardo DRS has a charitable foundation which sponsors and provides grants to causes that reflect its commitment to our U.S. Armed Forces, the health and education of children, and community and civic causes that improve the quality of life in our local DRS communities.
We sponsor corporate campaigns, organize, and participate in national and local charity events. Leonardo DRS and its employees have rapidly responded to natural disasters, supporting numerous relief programs at home and abroad, offering financial assistance to help those in critical need. We believe in helping current military members and veterans - as well as their families.
Our employees can participate in the myCOMMUNITY program to encourage volunteerism and charitable giving to positively affect their local communities. myCOMMUNITY is comprised of two components: Charitable Matching to match employees’ charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations up to a certain limit annually; and a Time Off for Volunteering Program to encourage employees to participate in volunteer activities by providing the benefit of paid time off to volunteer.
We are passionate about supporting and giving back to the communities where we live and work.
