Community investment and partnerships
Together, we’re building stronger, more resilient communities
Investing in communities is a foundational part of our identity at Meridian. We believe that by using our financial expertise in combination with community-focused partnerships, we can effect meaningful change and help communities build financial resilience.
As a credit union, we don’t have public shareholders — our Members are our owners. That means more of our profits are used to help support the communities of the Members we serve.
