Employee and Community Well-Being 42 Investing in Our Communities General Dynamics spans continents, but we never lose sight of the communities where we live and work. We invest in and promote involvement at the local level to make our communities better — whether that is through improving education and social services; promoting health, arts and culture; supporting policies to strengthen our national security; assisting those in need; or assisting veterans and their families. In 2020, General Dynamics contributed to organizations that target four areas: y Education & Social Services y Arts & Culture y Service Member Support Community Outreach Each business unit participates in community outreach and support efforts that align with local community needs. Employees choose which programs and organizations to support based on what is near to their hearts, and then organize the donation of time, goods and services to places such as local chapters of the United Way, the YMCA or organizations like Jill’s House in the D.C. metro area, which celebrates and provides support for children with special needs and their families. Educational Outreach General Dynamics employees participate in educational outreach and support, volunteering their time, talent and expertise to teach and train future members of the workforce. They participate in activities such as leading robotics clubs and music programs, and mentoring college students and interns. We also participate in the National Merit Scholarship Program, which awards scholarships to children of General Dynamics employees annually. Promoting STEM Facilitating strong knowledge and understanding of STEM concepts is crucial to building a pipeline of talent for a productive society and our future workforce. As such, General Dynamics participates in a variety of initiatives that advance STEM education and programming, particularly in underserved communities. For example, in 2020, GD employees mentored students in Ohio State University’s engineering technology program, establishing a mentorship program to introduce students to STEM- specific topics and hosting visits to our facilities to show students how we integrate STEM into jobs. Contributions to Community Organizations 70% 18% 12% Education & Social Services Arts & Culture Service Member Support Gulfstream implemented a new cloud- based giving program called “Gulfstream for Good,” where employees can donate to nonprofit organizations of their choice and the company will match their donations. Between pledges and the company match, charitable giving to date through the program has totaled more than $1.5 million.
