Dedicated to Supporting our Communities and Giving Back


At General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, community engagement is at the core of our business. We are dedicated to supporting our communities and giving back to them in the same way that they give to us. That’s why we are invested in making a special effort to support our veterans, STEM programs and other local initiatives to enhance the communities in which we live and work.

Local Communities

We’re proud to invest in the local communities where our employees live and work, supporting organizations that make a positive impact and have documented outcomes. Our community investment programs include employee based volunteer and fundraising initiatives, and corporate giving.

STEM Initiatives

Having a contingent of qualified engineers requires robust educational resources that prepare technology students for the engineering workforce. That’s why a central theme of our community investment is to recognize the importance of engineering and technology education. A number of our employees across the country partner with local communities to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and inspire our next generation of innovators.


At General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems we are committed to serving those who served our nation. The veterans within our company make us stronger in the same way that they make our nation stronger. In addition to donating to a variety of veteran organizations, our employees actively engage in a multitude of fundraising events every year that support both veterans and active-duty military and their families.
