Social Responsibility

The seventh cooperative principle, Concern for Community, explains that cooperatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies and programs accepted by their members. NISC is committed to not only providing world-class solutions and service to our Members, but also to ensuring we’re being good stewards in our communities. Below are a number of eco-friendly practices we’ve put into place in our offices:

Automated LED & Solar Lighting

One unique feature that sets us apart is our Benevolence Fund. The Benevolence Fund is a donation-based fund that employees contribute to each month to help coworkers in need. NISC also has Volunteer Committees, which focus on giving back throughout the year to charities and organizations recommended by our employees. We’ve raised thousands of dollars for organizations including the United Way, the Alzheimer’s Association and Brave the Shave, a cause dedicated to finding cures for childhood cancers and providing support during cancer treatments.

In honor of NISC’s recent 50th anniversary, employees also raised funds for NISC’s Giving 50@50 campaign, which gave back to NRECA International and Foundation for Rural Service – two exemplary organizations dedicated to providing electricity and broadband in underserved areas.
