The Meridian Society officially launched its philanthropic mission in October 2003 with its first official meeting. It is an organization of women dedicated to supporting a variety of SIUE programs. The Society’s name is based on the fact that the 90th Meridian, exactly one-fourth of the way around the world from the Prime Meridian, runs through the SIUE campus.

The Society …

  • Educates members on personal finance and philanthropic goals
  • Inspires women to become leaders in supporting SIUE and community causes
  • Enhances understanding and knowledge of women in philanthropy including their charitable support priorities as well as community influence
  • Participates in influencing SIUE and the community via their annual Impact Fund Awards
  • Supports SIUE Long-term goals for Active Community Engagement and Excellent Reputation

The Meridian Society has memberships at various financial levels. Organizational and Junior Volunteer (Ages 16-22) memberships are also welcomed.

The Society also presents annual Impact Fund financial awards every year that are given to outstanding community outreach programs and projects to be supported through SIUE departments and services.
