Orbital ATK in the Community

Each year, we support a variety of organizations and activities in our communities through our Orbital ATK Gives Back program. Our support for community programs is consistent with the company’s foundational principles as expressed in our Mission, Vision and Values, each intended to make a contribution to the quality of life in the communities in which we work and live. As a decentralized organization, our community relations are mostly nurtured at the local level. Orbital ATK has strong leadership support for both employee engagement and corporate philanthropy, but it is our business units that are in the best position to identify local needs and forge relationships with organizations that enhance communities.

These causes reflect the values embodied in our employees and are inherent to the Orbital ATK culture. Our employees are talented professionals, but it is their compassion for others that helps make Orbital ATK an exceptional contributor to the public good.

We are a valued partner to our neighbors and our nation. Our criteria for Orbital ATK Gives Back program support is focused on three core areas related to the nature of our business. We primarily support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education; military, military families and veterans causes; and non-profit programs that benefit our local communities, such as support for first responders and local food bank and housing organizations.

Education and STEM

Orbital ATK is dedicated to fostering future generations of engineers, scientists and technicians who will one day work in the aerospace and defense industries. Charitable giving for education and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) related programs is managed at the local level and directly impacts the communities in which we work and live.

Through the annual Orbital ATK Scholarship Program, recipients are selected from an academically talented pool of applicants from around the country who are children of company employees. On average, more than 75 percent of scholarships are awarded to students with STEM-related majors. The program’s emphasis on these specific fields underscores Orbital ATK’s focus on STEM education as the driver of innovation and technology.

Veterans and Military Programs

Supporting those who defend our freedoms is a core value at Orbital ATK. Through partnerships and support for annual events, we seek to help veterans, active duty military and their families in our local communities across the country. We actively partner with military organizations, such as the USO, to give back to those who defend our freedoms through volunteer efforts, military appreciation events, toy drives and more.


Local programs that benefit public safety, quality of life and those in need in the communities in which Orbital ATK employees and their families work and live are our key focus, through civic programs and employee volunteer efforts. Orbital ATK’s primary goal of supporting civic programs is to support those in our local communities who need a helping hand and first responders who protect and ensure public safety. As a company, Orbital ATK’s primary civic program for charitable giving is the United Way. Volunteer programs in which Orbital ATK employees actively participate also receive special consideration and recognition.
