NIPSCO Employees Raise over $125,000 for Veterans

Monday, October 23, 2017

Last month, NIPSCO EDI reported on NIPSCO’s employee-drive, annual charity effort, Charity of Choice. The campaign is entirely employee-driven, with NIPSCO matching dollar-for-dollar up to the total target of $100,000.

This year, NIPSCO employees voted for the funds to go towards organizations that support veterans. Over 30 different veteran-focused organizations put in requests for projects and programs to be supported, and thanks to the incredible generosity as well as work of NIPSCO employees this year Charity of Choice far exceeded its $100,000 target.

This year, donations totaling $125,000 will go to support veteran groups throughout northern Indiana as well as the Terre Haute area. The NiSource Charitable Foundation also contributed $25,000 to the cause, raising the overall total to $150,000 in funding raised in a single year. The money was presented during a ceremony in September.

Congratulations and outstanding work, everyone involved in this year’s Charity of Choice!
