"Our annual campaign, Investing in Dreams, is one of the most positive and rewarding investments anyone can make.

We celebrate the students who are persevering through adversity, including facing increasing costs for so many of life's essentials. The NIC Foundation is grateful for the many generous past and present donors who partner with us to provide scholarships to these deserving students as they pursue education and training and work to attain their individual goals.
