Together, we can help thousands of learners unlock their full potential and secure family-sustaining careers.

We couldn’t have done it without you.

At Merit America, we are dedicated to providing hard-working learners with the training and support they need to succeed. To date, our efforts have resulted in nearly $700M in wage gains for low-wage Americans. We are proud to report that for every $1 invested in Merit America, we are able to drive $33 in wage gains into the pockets of hard-working Americans. But we still need your support to drive $1B in wage gains by 2025.
