A Note from our Co-CEOs

We invite you to review our 2023 Impact Report, a testament to the dedication of all who have contributed to Merit America’s journey. At the time of publication, we have served over 9,275 individuals across multiple career tracks, resulting in an estimated cumulative wage gain of $695,625,000. As we wrap up our fifth anniversary, we will continue to work towards achieving our goal of generating $1 billion in cumulative wage gains.

Your support, both past and future, is essential in helping us achieve this milestone. Whether you have participated in our program, partnered with us in our mission, or supported our cause as a donor, you have played an important part in our success. We are motivated by the opportunities that lie ahead, and as you review this report, we hope you will be too.

Thank you for being a part of our journey!
