The Merit Foundation will clear paths for individuals in lower-income communities and schools, regardless of skin color, gender, or religious beliefs, to pursue career options in our industry they otherwise might not be exposed to. From traditional marketing and advertising to technology and coding to social media, video production, public relations and more, our foundation will make our industry careers more desirable and accessible.
There is no other business any of us at Merit would rather be in and we believe by launching The Merit Foundation that many more individuals will have the opportunity to say the very same thing.
HOW IT WORKS
The Merit Foundation will help with financial support in minority schools and school districts and help develop school programs and activities to encourage students to learn more about the different aspects of our industry. It will help with the development of internship programs and issue grants to schools or other organizations that support minority students in their interests in the marketing and advertising industry. We are grateful we have the opportunities we do, and for our clients and partners who support us.
