 Philanthropic Guidelines

 

Meritor’s policy is to assume the duties and responsibilities of a good corporate citizen worldwide. A portion of these duties and responsibilities will be discharged by an annual investment of part of the corporation’s earnings in philanthropic activities.

Meritor’s philanthropic programs focus on the following two key areas.

 
 
 
 
 

 Education

 

We believe there is no better way to ensure a prosperous future than to support programs devoted to improving education, especially in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). More than 50 percent of our contributions budget benefits educational institutions and programs worldwide, including the colleges and universities from which we recruit our talent. Our support of education is further strengthened by the efforts of the thousands of Meritor employees who volunteer their time to mentor students, assist in classrooms and participate in innovative educational programs.

 
 
 
 
 

 The Communities Where Our Employees Live and Work

 

We seek to use our human and financial resources in partnership with local, private and public agencies to achieve measurable improvements in the quality of life. We do this through a focus on:

  • Education
