Meridian's Good Neighbour Program

What the program is all about

Meridian exists to make it easier for Canadians to have a better life and one of the ways we do so is through our Commitment to Communities. As part of this commitment, we invest in programs and partnerships that benefit Ontario’s communities. One of the ways we make these investments is through our Good Neighbour Program.

The Good Neighbour Program is our local non-profit sponsorship program. We take pride in the fact that our team members forge partnerships with local charities, not-for-profits, and public organizations so that we can work together to meet each community’s needs.

Our community sponsorship decisions are made by our local teams to address the unique needs of each of our communities. If your application is eligible, it will be reviewed by our nearest branch or region for consideration.

If you represent an Ontario-based charity or non-profit organization and 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, initiative or program 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 and makes decisions on a rolling basis until program funds are depleted.
  • Please carefully consider your application as Meridian will sponsor only one event, initiative or program per organization per year.  
  • Meridian Credit Union does not provide funding for religious or political activities, private organizations, individual pursuits, or any projects or events taking place outside the communities where Meridian operates.  
  • 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 additional attachments if necessary.
