Meridian's Good Neighbour Program

What the program is all about

Meridian exists to help lives grow and one of the ways we do so is through our Commitment to Communities. As part of this commitment, we invest a minimum of 4% of pre-tax earnings in initiatives that benefit Ontario’s communities. One of the key ways through which we make these investments is our Good Neighbour Program.

A key difference with Meridian is that our commitment is local. Our employees and branches are empowered to make decisions locally, both in terms of helping our Members and which organizations we choose to support. 

If your application is eligible, it will be presented to our nearest branch or region for consideration. We take pride in the fact that our employees forge partnerships with local charities, not-for-profits, and public organizations so that they can work together to meet each community’s unique needs.

If you are interested in becoming a local partner of Meridian, we want to hear from you!


  • Sponsorship requests should be received at least six weeks before the event takes place. The greater the advance notice we're given, the better decisions we can make regarding your application. 
  • Meridian accepts sponsorship applications year-round.
  • Please carefully consider your application as Meridian will sponsor only one event/initiative/program per organization per year. 
  • Meridian Credit Union does not provide capital campaign donations, funding for operational costs or deficits, travel expenses, religious or political activities, private schools, individual pursuits, or any projects or events taking place outside the communities where we do business. 
  • Meridian receives applications for funding from many worthy organizations and cannot fulfill all requests. You will be notified if your application is successful. Previous sponsorship support by Meridian Credit Union does not guarantee approval of your application
  • Be sure to include as much information as possible on the application form including any additional attachments necessary
