Culture and Altruism
Since its founding in 1999, Meridian has relentlessly supported charitable and altruistic efforts in its local communities and in worldwide research communities. To keep patients and communities at the forefront, Meridian created the All In: Strength In Numbers program.
The program reinforces full trial enrollment, superior research conduct, and a shared mission to help people beyond the clinic. Each year, Meridian donates to charities that operate in the communities in which it operates. The donation amount is influenced by employee and enrollment performance. In 2020, Meridian donated more than $465,675 as part of this program.
Beyond donating to charities, Meridian has an annual Good Deeds Day — a tradition of spontaneous giving began more than a decade ago. For Good Deeds Day, employees at each Meridian site are given a cash stipend and a simple instruction: Go into your community and make a difference. Meridian employees decide on the best way to donate to the community, support local charities, or perform small acts of kindness.
