Citizenship & Community Engagement
We harness our employees' collective passions to improve the communities in which we live and work.
SAIC's Citizenship & Community Engagement program builds upon the talent, creativity, and passion of our employees and their families, as we give back to our local communities. We build partnerships with nonprofit organizations that serve the missions, people, and causes that matter to our employees: Military & Veteran Resiliency, Lifelong STEM Learning, and Community Wellbeing.
SAIC is committed to ensuring our communities remain healthy and strong, through both good and challenging times. We partner with organizations such as Feeding America and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help our communities when they need it the most.
As part of Hunger Action Month that occurs annually in September, SAIC locations across the country deck out in orange and participate in Feeding America's Give-A-Meal Team Challenge. Since 2013, SAIC has donated over 22.7 million meals in our quest to end hunger.
Each year, SAIC employees across the country fundraise, walk, and bring hope to the 1.3 million people in the U.S. who are living with or are in remission from blood cancer through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light The Night walks.
SAIC teams across the country also support a variety of health missions, including the American Heart Association's Heart Walk, Gold Star Teen Adventures' Bike, Run or Walk.
Military and Veteran Resiliency
SAIC is proud to serve our military and veterans, who make up about 25% of our workforce. We provide smooth transitions into civilian cyber careers for veterans and security for wounded veterans while supporting organizations that help military families succeed during every step in their journeys.
SAIC has helped donate 13 homes to our military heroes and their families and raised more than $500,00 through BHH. As a result, we provided our thirteenth mortgage-free home to a wounded veteran and his family in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
SAIC employees proudly support USO’s Project Elf and provide holiday gifts for hundreds of junior enlisted children every year.
Lifelong STEM learning
SAIC believes that science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education cannot end with a high school diploma, as we continue to solve our nation's most complex modernization and readiness challenges. We advocate lifelong STEM learning, from supporting experiential learning activities for K-12 students to providing an array of professional development opportunities for our employees.
SAIC supports K-12 education through our robotics program grants, a NASA teacher externship, and SAIC week at Space Camp. We support higher education with STEM scholarships through the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.
