Donate to support our mission!

We are thankful for any amount of money you can contribute. Your donation will help people with disabilities live independently. Check out our News Page for stories about how MERIL has impacted the lives of people with disabilities in Northwest Missouri.

You can bring cash or a check to one of our offices, or you can donate to our PayPal account with a credit or debit card.

Let us know if you want your donation to support a specific service.

Use AmazonSmile!

If you shop on Amazon, you should be using AmazonSmile. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, and you get to support nonprofit organizations with each purchase you make on Amazon.

If you go to and shop, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase amount to a nonprofit of your choice. For March 2018 only, Amazon is tripling this donation amount to 1.5%!!

We hope that you choose MERIL as your donation recipient!

Spread the Word about Us!

We need your help with our outreach efforts. Our goal is to let everyone in Northwest Missouri know about the services we offer so they can get the assistance they need if they ever happen to experience a disability.

You can help us by telling everyone you know about the work we are doing. They may know someone we can help.

You can like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, encourage someone to sign up for our newsletters, print our brochure, or post one of our flyers at your organization:

Download our flyer for Andrew, Buchanan, and Nodaway counties.

Download our flyer for Atchison, Clinton, DeKalb, Gentry, Holt, and Worth counties.

Shop at thousands of stores and earn cash back. You can then donate some or all of your cash-back earnings to MERIL!

Set Goodsearch as your default search engine. Each time you search, a penny will be donated to MERIL. That really adds up!

Donate Supplies
