Arvig is the recipient of the 2015 Community Leader Award from Commsoft.

The Perham-based broadband provider was recognized for its dedication to its communities, and specifically for its involvement via the Arvig School

Since 2010, Arvig has donated nearly $500,000 to local schools, made possible by the School

“As a community-based provider, giving back is a huge part of our mission, especially when it involves supporting rural education,” said Staci Malikowski, Chief Financial Officer at Arvig.

“With the School Partnership Program, we have a chance to hear from our customers and invest in what’s important to them.”

Arvig’s School Partnership Program is customer-driven, allowing anyone who receives Internet service from Arvig the opportunity to help raise money for their local school.

Customers sign up for the program and Arvig donates $1 of that monthly Internet payment to the school of the customer’s choice, at no additional cost to the customer. The only requirement is the school needs to be within the core Arvig service area.

The company presents the schools with checks twice per year. The donation can be used toward whatever the school needs, whether they’re looking to upgrade a computer lab or buy

“We hear about teachers using their own income to purchase class supplies because of budget constraints. The goal of this program is to fill those gaps,” said Malikowski. “We want our educators to worry less about teaching from an outdated book and instead, just focus on providing the best learning experience for our kids.”
