About Alion

Alion Cares/Community Involvement

Alion Cares Logo

Alion is committed to playing an active role in the quality of our communities. We strive to create and participate in activities that benefit the areas in which we work and live. As employee-owners we strive to be corporate leaders as well as community leaders.

Alion Cares has identified four focus areas to concentrate our giving and volunteer efforts. The focus areas reflect our customers, employee-owners, company and communities.

While we would like to contribute to all those in need, these focus areas are determined to benefit and add value to the overall mission of Alion.
