NIC Corporate Social Responsibility

At NIC, community service is taken seriously because we believe serving as a government contractor requires more than just a commitment to doing good work for our partners. We foster a culture of service in which our local offices across the country become active members of their communities. NIC also sponsors internal and external programs that advocate service and recognize the accomplishments of employees whose focus on public service does not end when the workday is over.

Across the country, NIC’s employees are donating their time and money to dozens of important causes, including fighting breast cancer, driving higher literacy rates, encouraging pet adoption, building high quality housing for the homeless, and supporting the families of police officers killed in the line of duty.

Public service initiatives and charitable causes NIC’s offices and employees have supported recently include:

Ride4COPS logo


CEO Harry Herington founded Ride4COPS in 2009 to raise awareness of the inherent dangers of law enforcement and help support the families of fallen officers. As a former police officer, Herington understands first-hand the burdens of law enforcement families whose loved ones are killed in the line of duty.

Harry is committed to riding his custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle to every state capitol and raising money along the way. To date he has held Ride4Cops events at 20 state capitols and in Washington, D.C., as well as raised more than $150,000 which has been donated to nonprofits that support law enforcement.

Citizen of the Year & Team of the Year

NIC’s Citizen & Team of the Year programs recognize the outstanding volunteer efforts of our employees. Through this program, employees and NIC office teams who donate their time to community organizations each year are eligible for recognition.

One important distinction is that the Citizen & Team of the Year programs encourage hands-on participation in community service. Making financial contributions to worthy organizations is always valuable, but nominations will primarily be evaluated based upon the impact these volunteer efforts have made in communities across the country.

To nominate NIC employees or teams - or to get more information about NIC's Citizen & Team of the Year programs, please contact Dessi Tomova at or (913) 754-7000.
