We strive to be a valued partner to our communities and we demonstrate this by supporting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and military and veteran causes.
As part of its efforts to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians, Lockheed Martin’s approach to STEM outreach includes support for programs, events and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity.
And to help give back to those who give so much for our nation, Lockheed Martin is dedicated to supporting service members with programs that improve their lives and the lives of their families and honour their selfless duty to our country.
These causes reflect the values embodied in our employees and intrinsic to the Lockheed Martin culture. Stated simply, our employees care. They are talented professionals, but it is their genuine concern for others that helps make Lockheed Martin an exceptional contributor to the public good.

Australian War Memorial
We are a benefactor to the Australian War Memorial in recognition of the many sacrifices made by Australians in the service of our nation.

We are the prime partner to Australia’s National Youth Science Forum whose charter is to encourage young Australians in their passion for science, technology, engineering and maths and to inspire them to pursue careers in STEM. In 2018, we committed our ongoing support to NYSF for a further three years, covering the 2018, 2019 and 2020 programs.
We are the foundation sponsor of Remount, a horsemanship program designed to assist returned servicemen and women, and their families, to manage the impacts of loss, work-related stress, combat stress or PTSD, to re-establish their lives and develop new career paths post-service.
