In 2009, the Coast Guard Foundation recognized Lockheed Martin as its largest corporate donor, and honored the corporation with a plaque in recognition of its corporate philanthropy.
Coast Guard President Anne B. Brengle presents Lockheed Martin MS2 President and Foundation Trustee, Fred Moosally, with Lockheed's lifetime giving award.
Celebrated for cumulative giving over $2 million, the Foundation presented the award to Fred P. Moosally, Coast Guard Foundation trustee and president of Lockheed Martin's Maritime Systems and Sensors (MS2) business unit, at the company's Washington, D.C. offices.
Lockheed Martin's support is used by the Foundation to fund important projects and programs that seek to improve the lives and performance of Coast Guard members, their families and Coast Guard Academy cadets, including college scholarships for children, as well as grants for enlisted members.
"The Coast Guard Foundation is grateful to all of our donors – corporate and individual, large and small – who contribute to the work we do," said Anne Brengle, president of the Coast Guard Foundation. "Lockheed Martin's corporate support and philanthropy are the cornerstones of the success the Coast Guard Foundation has achieved and have made many programs and projects for our maritime guardians and their families possible."
"Lockheed Martin is honored to support the important work the Coast Guard Foundation does in support of the United States Coast Guard and their families," said Mr. Moosally. "We feel strongly that it is our responsibility to give back to those who give as much to protect this country as the dedicated men and women of the Coast Guard."
