Corporate & Foundation Giving to UnityPoint Health - Meriter

Corporate & Foundation Giving

For more than 115 years, corporations and private foundations have been important partners in supporting patient care initiatives at Meriter. The Foundation welcomes the opportunity to work with organizations to identify areas of mutual interest and develop partnerships that benefit the health of our community.

There are a variety of ways a company or foundation can partner with Meriter:

  • Outright support for a special program or building project
  • Sponsor an event or lectureship
  • Sponsor a clinical trial
  • Host a fundraising event on behalf of Meriter Foundation
  • Offer matching gift opportunities for your employees - contact your employer to learn if they will match your gift and the process for securing the match.
  • In-kind donations of supplies, equipment or volunteer time

Thank you to our Corporate Partners who made a difference in 2018:

National Guardian Life Insurance Company (NGL)
NGL Insurance Group has partnered with UnityPoint Health - Meriter to offer families and babies in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) sweet pea dolls.  The adorable little sweet peas offer an essential bonding aid between parent and child and help to soothe infants in the isolettes.
