Building Better Communities With You
In keeping with our core value of Community Involvement, Nitsch Cares – an employee-led committee that acts as a steward for our communities – coordinates a range of volunteering and fundraising initiatives, and guides our corporate charitable giving.
Nitsch focuses our community engagement and charitable donation efforts in three key areas, with priority given to non-profits and agencies that work to improve the communities in which our offices are located:
- STEM education: We support STEM education programs in general, but specifically seek to support programs that target students from populations who are underrepresented in the engineering industry, particularly females and people of color, or are from communities that are economically disadvantaged. Some of our key programs include:
- Homelessness: We support non-profits that seek to end homelessness or provide services to people who are experiencing homelessness. Some of our key partners include:
- Environmental advocacy: We support non-profits that work to protect and restore our environment. Some of our key initiatives include:
We’re also proud to provide a donation matching program for employees.
Supporting the A/E/C Industry
Nitsch believes that active involvement in the A/E/C community provides a wealth of benefits for both our employees and the community at large. Currently, 72% of our management/technical staff are members of at least one professional society/organization. On top of this, 15% of our staff are currently involved in their local communities, serving on planning boards, conservation commissions, city/town government committees, school committees, or youth sports organizations. We’re proud to support our employees in making their communities stronger.
