Beyond Ourselves

Investing for social impact is foundational to peopleCare and a way of living our Values. Together, and with our partners, we strive to be a positive force for change in our communities and around the globe through MEDA, an NGO that creates business solutions to end poverty.

Like peopleCare, MEDA partners at a local level, finding sustainable ways to meet existing needs and build skills, knowledge and resources for the future, so everyone in the community benefits from greater prosperity and wellbeing. Read peopleCare Chairman and CEO Brent Gingerich’s blog: Tackling Social Issues Through a Shared Value Approach.

In 2021, we were ready to move forward with a renewed purpose. At the same time, in a year with continued need for precautions like physical distancing, our fundraising activities had to look a little different.

Our teams fundraised for MEDA and supported local causes in whatever heartfelt ways made sense for their residents, families and communities. peopleCare matched dollars for kilometres walked during our virtual Walk to Wellness. The Gingerich family, third-generation owners of peopleCare, also personally amplified a portion of community partner donations to MEDA.

With the world turning a more positive corner, we look forward to engaging our Homes, partners and communities in planning a safe, fun and successful Beyond Ourselves campaign for 2022. Stay tuned for news on our plans and progress, and thank you for continuing to partner with us to be a positive force for change in our local communities and, through MEDA, around the globe.

A Long-Term Commitment and Partnership: All funds raised are targeted to MEDA’s Nigeria WAY, a five-year initiative that will benefit 41,000 people by supporting women and youth entrepreneurs to earn a sustainable living and contribute to the overall welfare of their communities.

Over the past four years – with donation multiplying from government and private foundations taken into account – peopleCare and partners have generated close to $2M for MEDA.

To donate, visit peopleCare’s page on MEDA’s website. MEDA provides tax receipts and will work with peopleCare to acknowledge and amplify all contributions.
