“WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN SAVE LIVES”
For over 40 years, Meridian HealthCare has been at the forefront of addressing the most important issues facing individuals and families. Support for Meridian is more than a donation — it’s an INVESTMENT in your community and into the life of someone’s dad, mom, spouse, child, sibling or grandparent who turns to us for life-saving help.
There are many ways to support our mission. For more information, contact Meridian’s Development Office (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- The Grace Fund
Every day, people turn to Meridian for help. Unfortunately, many who need treatment for an addiction have inadequate resources or medical insurance. Through the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations who support the Grace Fund, Meridian can ensure that those who need help get it — regardless of their ability to pay. The Grace Fund was named in memory of Chilita Grace, a long-time counselor at Meridian who dedicated her life to serving others.
- Meridian Scholarship Fund
Meridian provides college scholarships each year to high school seniors who demonstrate leadership and a desire to live a positive, drug-free lifestyle.
- The Meridian Endowment
Meridian established the Endowment Fund to be sure that the services it provides to individuals and families will be available for generations to come. Gifts can be restricted to specific Meridian programs or unrestricted to allow Meridian to use funds where they are needed most.
- Planned Giving
With a planned gift to Meridian, you can combine your desire to give to charity with your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals.
- Matching Gifts
Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most of these programs match contributions dollar-for-dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift.
- United Way Designation
Individuals can designate gifts to Meridian through a United Way workplace campaign. Just indicate “Meridian HealthCare” on your donation form.
- The Youngstown Foundation Support Fund
Have your investment in Meridian go a little further. By donating through The Youngstown Foundation’s Support fund, Meridian will receive an additional 5% for amounts of $100 or more, up to $5000. Checks are to be made payable to the Youngstown Foundation. There is also an online donation option for this program which can be accessed here.
- Corporate/Community Sponsorship
Businesses and Community Groups can partner with Meridian by sponsoring Prevention programs in their local school districts. Organizations who participate make a DIRECT and lasting impact on the young people in their community.
