At NIBC, we seek to contribute to the well-being of the societies in which we operate. To this end, we encourage our employees to volunteer their time and expertise to local community projects.
Under our matching programme, NIBC matches funds that employees have raised for a good cause or time they have spent supporting charities. The matching programme is open to good causes that are officially recognised as not-for-profit fundraising organisations.
