Yorktown Systems Group Inc., a Huntsville-based company providing training, administrative support and program management services to government agencies, has launched Foundation 1781, a charitable organization that partners with community programs to promote childhood education, mitigate hunger issues and overcome hardships that affect the under-resourced.
“Our team has been passionate about serving the Tennessee Valley community since our establishment,” said Bryan Dyer, Yorktown president and CEO. “As our team continues to grow, it made sense for us to create something more formal, independent of Yorktown, and backed with a dedicated team of individuals who strive to create social good in the communities we call home.”
Yorktown was founded in 2008 and has a workforce that is made up of more than 50% veterans.
Foundation 1781 has partnered with Little Orange Fish, a Huntsville-based nonprofit furthering community mental health education; The Inner Defense Initiative, a collaborative effort researching individual’s immune system response to psychological trauma; Village of Promise, a family advancement center providing educational programs and tools to families in poverty; and Kindred Souls Foundation, a charity providing sanctuary to abandoned cats and dogs.
