Big Brothers and Big Sisters
Supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa is an ongoing relationship for many of our employees. Through the workplace mentoring program, middle school students are matched with NCMIC employees for monthly get-togethers that include fun activities as well as an opportunity to learn about the work world.

Meals from the Heartland
With sleeves rolled up and hair nets in place, NCMIC employees have been teaming up to package Meals from the Heartland at onsite events (pre-COVID) to help save children one meal at a time. Meals from the Heartland has been a mainstay of NCMIC’s charitable giving efforts for 12 years.

Boys & Girls Club of Central Iowa
At the end of the school day, most kids head home to start homework and then to after school activities. It’s a regular routine – but not one that every child has. NCMIC is proud to support Boys & Girls Club of Central Iowa and all they do to provide safety and support after school as well as meals, role models, organized sports and access to the arts.

When it comes to taking care of others, ChildServe serves a unique and much-needed role for thousands of children in Iowa.

When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation was established in 1955, people born with the disease weren't expected to live much past the age of 5. Today, people with CF are living into their 30s, 40s, and beyond. Supporting CF has been part of NCMIC’s charitable giving efforts for many years. NCMIC staff regularly participate in the CF’s Shoot for a Cure event and other fundraising activities during the year.
