Meridian Global Foundation was founded in 2005 by a group of Perth-based business people looking to contribute something back to their community.
The founders were looking for a more sustainable and personal way to make a difference and knew there were a lot of like-minded people who felt the same way. The question was how to harness the passion, talents and generosity of a new generation beyond just making a financial donation to a charity.
They realised that the fulfilment, passion and inspiration associated with supporting worthy causes comes from being more closely involved; thus with the help of other likeminded individuals, Meridian Global Foundation was born.
Meridian is dedicated to making a sustainable difference and we are unique in the way in which we achieve this charter. Part of this difference is that not only does your donation go towards worthy charities today, part of every donation is invested to build up a fund to provide donations into the future. That way, you are investing in philanthropy and building a legacy that will impact future generations.
This, balanced with the fact that Meridian focuses on sustainable projects means that your donation will keep on giving. Examples of sustainable giving are smicrofinance projects which recycle funds through loans to families looking for a hand up to start a business venture or the purchase education based resources which are used many times to benefit a community.
Returns in the Meridian Global Fund are fully reinvested to build our capital base and are overseen by a professional board to ensure capital is put to the best use.
