Minnesota Business Magazine has recognized Neuger Communications Group (NCG), a full-service strategic communications and public relations firm with offices in Northfield and Minneapolis, Minn., as a finalist for the 2016 Community Impact Awards.

Neuger Communications Group is a finalist in the Professional Services award category, awarded to a company for professional services provided to Minnesota nonprofits or other worthy causes on a pro bono basis.

David Neuger, president and CEO of Neuger Communications Group, said, “It’s an honor to be a finalist for the Community Impact Awards and to be recognized for our commitment to bettering the communities where we live and work. Our team is excited to be a part of a thriving group of nominees that make giving back a priority.”

Since its founding in 2002, Neuger Communications Group has committed to supporting the community and nonprofit organizations through donations of at least 5 percent of pre tax profits and cash donations. In addition, the company provides pro bono services to nonprofit organizations equivalent to at least 5 percent of its billable time each month. This year alone, the 15 members of the NCG team donated more than 350 hours of work. In addition, Neuger Communications Group hosts the Common Good Breakfast Series, a quarterly networking event aimed at solving problems facing the common good. Proceeds of the Common Good Breakfast Series are donated to a different charity or nonprofit organization after each event.

“An important legacy in Minnesota is that businesses have been at the forefront in building a strong and vigorous community,” says Minnesota Business Editor in Chief Steve LeBeau. “We are proud to encourage that tradition by honoring those in the private sector who excel at serving the public good.”

Winners will be announced at a February 25, 2016 celebration held at Aria in Minneapolis.
