Nominate a Charity

Nominate a Charity

If you are part of our Giving Circle for this year then you are able to nominate a charity of your choice – who may share in the $50,000 our community gives away. Imagine turning your $1,000 into a $25,000 donation.

We assess all nominations on the following critieria and the top 3 as judged by our Board get to come along to the Giving Event at the end of the year – where all who make that night will share in the $50,000

Nomination criteria:

  • Are aligned with Meridian’s key values & objectives being:
    • Sustainability – It goes into perpetuity & has ongoing resources to fund itself
    • Ethical – within the accepted principles of what is right and wrong
    • Empowerment – a hands up rather than a hands out approach
    • Innovation – Looking for new solutions to existing challenges.
    • Inspiration – each person and project is a spark for others
  • Have income tax charity endorsement from the Australian Taxation Office.
