NIC sells awareness bracelets in support of fundraising campaign
Although financial contributions to the NIC Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign are the focus of the community fundraising campaign set to raise a minimum of $2 million to equip the NIC Health and Sciences Building and provide student scholarships, non-monetary support of the college and campaign is also important.
“We were looking for a way to spread awareness of the campaign as well as give people a tangible way to show their support of the college,” said NIC Alumni Relations Coordinator Sara Fladeland.
The family division, a division of the campaign leadership devoted to NIC students, employees and alumni, noticed people young and old showing their support for various projects with awareness bracelets.

The college saw the bracelets as a perfect opportunity to raise funds for the campaign as well as spread awareness about NIC.
The college awareness bracelets are cardinal red and customized with “NIC Supporter.”
Bracelets are $2 each and are available through the NIC Mica Peak Exchange bookstore, the NIC Foundation Office in Sherman Administration Building Room 104 or from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the lobby of NIC's Edminster Student Union Building through May 19.
All proceeds will benefit the Providing Opportunities—Fulfilling Dreams Community Campaign.
