EDGE is our employee giving philanthropic and engagement program. Since 1989, Ingalls employees have contributed nearly $4 million to support Ingalls Development Foundation (IDF) events, hospital programs and scholarships. Donations also support important clinical programs including oncology, our cardiology and retina care, the Healthy Baby Network and much more. Our EDGE employee giving philanthropic and engagement program is overseen by a dedicated committee of active EDGE members working in partnership with IDF.
