COMMUNITY AND PHILANTHROPY

At Meyer Najem we believe that a community is more than a collection of buildings. It’s an orchestra of intentional places, people and energy and that, while a great foundation is necessary, strong relationships and responsible leadership are what allow a community to thrive.

“The people at Meyer Najem have a passion not only for the work that we do, but for the people and organizations in the communities where we work, and that commitment makes a difference.”

Philanthropy is one of our strategic initiatives to ensure we always give back to the communities we serve. During the company’s 30-year history, Meyer Najem has supported more than 1,000 nonprofits and has given more than $1 million to local, regional and national organizations—ranging from the American Heart Association and YMCA to the Humane Society and Make-A-Wish Foundation. Meyer Najem also frequently gives to several hospital foundations through relationships developed through healthcare construction work.

Next year will mark the tenth year of the company’s annual Swing into Giving® golf outing where local charities receive all proceeds from the event. In 2016, the event was sold out and more than $50,000 was donated to Misty Eyes Animal Center and the Fair Haven Foundation. Last summer associates also organized a spaghetti lunch for the Fishers Police Department and a chili lunch for the Fire Department.

Meyer Najem associates also collect winter outerwear for the Shepherd Community Center, donate toys to the Westminster Neighborhood Services and hold a food drive to help provide Thanksgiving dinners to families in need through Wafer Homeless Ministry and the Delaware Township Food Pantry. The company experienced 100 percent employee participation in last year’s food drive, which resulted in more than 40,000 servings of food.
