A Community Partner
Delivering services to homes and businesses is only part of who we are at Midco. We also value connecting with the communities we serve – and where our team members live and work – by contributing our resources where they really make a difference.
Part of giving back is supporting events and programs that benefit our communities. Midco sponsors many community events throughout our region. We also work with our network partners to bring some extra excitement to our communities with special events and appearances by TV characters such as Spongebob Squarepants or Dora the Explorer. Midco is proud to sponsor many organizations and venues across our footprint, including:
Levitt at the Falls
Levitt at the Falls builds community through music. The new, state-of-the-art outdoor music venue in uptown Sioux Falls presents free professional concerts.
We partner with Dakota Star Gymnastics and the Mandan Parks District to sponsor a state-of-the-art gymnasium – home of the Mandan Dakota Star Gymnastics team.
Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival
More than a decade in the making, the Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival features four days of family-friendly activities and competition. Go Midco Muskies!
Midco Aquatic Center
We partner with the City of Sioux Falls to sponsor the city’s first indoor aquatic center – complete with free Wi-Fi services on site for employees and guests.
International Falls Bass Championship
Minnesota’s premier bass fishing event, the International Falls Bass Championship is three days of family fun and great fishing.
Lawrence Public Library
Education and a vibrant public library are important, so Midco partnered with the Lawrence Public Library to update its lab computers and software.
Public Service Announcements
Need a megaphone for your message? Midco is happy to air public service announcements (PSAs) on our cable channels at no cost for qualifying 501(c)3 nonprofits in our service area.
Giving time and talent is an integral part of Midco culture. We encourage Midco team members to volunteer at local nonprofit organizations that they care about. Through our Midco ACTS program, team members can coordinate volunteer projects and encourage coworkers to participate. Some of our community projects include:
Midco team members regularly get together to assemble backpacks for hungry kids in our communities through the Feeding SD BackPack Program.
Team members and their families volunteer on specified weekends to clean up a section of highway as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program.
Great Plains Food Bank
Team members volunteer to sort, label and repack donated bulk foods that are donated to the Great Plains Food Bank to help feed hungry families in North Dakota.
Our team members step up during natural disasters. From sandbagging to clearing debris, Midco employees are quick to lend a helping hand.
Lunch is Served
Midco volunteers pack lunches for Lunch Is Served, getting midday meals ready for the working poor in Sioux Fall.
Building a successful workforce is pivotal to creating a vibrant community, which is why Midco proudly supports several educational platforms across the Midwest. Some of the initiatives that we support include:
Augie Access Program
Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD, invites young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to participate in Comprehensive Transition and Post-Secondary Program designed to increase employment outcomes.
Build Dakota Scholarships are awarded to skilled students entering high-need workforce programs at South Dakota technical institutes – helping students establish a foundation for their future, working to fill high-demand jobs in the area.
Our interns push Midco to think bigger. They work as part of our team from day one, participating in everyday tasks, leading special projects and learning more about their chosen career path while gaining valuable experience through our internship programs.

Midco Gives Back
Dating back to 1987, the Midco Foundation strives to inspire innovation, promote lifelong learning and provide financial support to individuals and families in the communities we serve. The Midco Foundation encourages nonprofit organizations to apply for grants that will assist with special projects, facility improvements, necessary equipment and innovative programming.
Midco SportsTM is your home for local and regional sports – and the athletes that make them great. From our partnerships with NCAA Division I programs to sponsoring premier athletic events like the Howard Wood Relays, we root for the many athletes, coaches, parents and volunteers that make sports great.
By using LED and motion sensor lights, recycling equipment and supplies, operating fuel-efficient generators and providing eco-friendly break room products, we are committed to lessening our environmental impact.
We make conscious efforts to equip ourselves and our customers with smart technology that reduces technology waste – including running high-efficiency, low-impact data centers.
Innovation is helping Midco become more socially responsible – from using more energy efficient equipment, logistics improvements to get more trucks off the road, and testing energy efficient power solutions for our team members in the field.
