February 29th - Meridian Title's "Day to Make a Change."


Since we rarely see February 29 on our calendars, Meridian Title wanted to do something special to celebrate this recent Leap Year. It all started with a question, "What will you do with your extra 24 hours?" In keeping with our philosophy of serving the communities in which we operate, we came up with our "Day To Make A Change" initiative. Throughout several of our offices company-wide, we invited our customers and employees to participate in a 1 day charity drive. Some of the local charities chosen included the following:

Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank
Food Bank of Northern Indiana
Combined Community Services
Every Dog Counts
St. Jude's Children's Hospital
Mad Anthony's Children's Hope House

Marshall County Neighborhood Center

Meridian Title would like to thank all of our customers and employees who generously donated during this campaign. We'd also like to send an extra special thanks to all of those charities listed above for all of the great things they provide for their individual communities.

Startup Weekend Michiana

         During the weekend of November 20-22, entrepreneurs and creative minds took over the historic Union Station Technology Center in downtown South Bend for 2015’s installment of Startup Weekend Michiana. Meridian was one of this year’s proud sponsors, and our very own Jennifer N.C. Purdy (Accounting Supervisor) returned as an event organizer!

Startup Weekend events happen all over the world. They are 54-hour events which help educate, support, and empower people to become entrepreneurs. Startup Weekend’s intensity makes it a different kind of hands-on educational experience which appeals to students, budding entrepreneurs, and existing innovative thinkers and doers. It is all about learning through the act of creating. Participants don’t just listen to theory, but put it to the test while collaborating with like-minded, passionate individuals. On top of that, participants receive invaluable one-on-one time with community movers and shakers, as local business and startup leaders are there as coaches and judges. 

Feel free to check out this video for more information, or contact Jennifer at

LaPorte County Achievement Award for Meridian Title

The LaPorte County Achievement Award goes to an individual or business who has spent time and energy making LaPorte County a tourism destination.

           Meridian Title Corporation is committed to community service and happy to involve their staff and offices to support worthy causes. They wanted to do something in our community to help a great charity, and decided the La Porte office site was a great location for hosting Alex's Lemonade Stand. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer started in 2000 with Alexandra “Alex” Scott who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer, before her first birthday.  Scott decided just after she turned four to hold a lemonade stand outside of her house to donate the proceeds to research.  She passed away in 2004, at the age of eight. Her family continued the lemonade foundation in her name.

Meridian Title hosted the first lemonade stand the summer of 2009 and for the sixth time, they will set up a tent in its parking lot and become lemonade vendors for the day on June 13th, 2014.  The money raised at this event will go to help fund childhood cancer research projects. One cup at a time, Meridian Title Corporation and Alex's Lemonade Stand will make strides in fighting childhood cancer.

Volunteer of the Year Award for Theresa Edwards

11 years ago Theresa Edwards and her husband Bennie were reminiscing about old friendships.  Soon after, the first Patch Harborside Heritage Celebration was held to reunite former Michigan City residents who lived in a designated area on Michigan Boulevard.  She helps with fund raising and that money goes toward scholarships for college bound high school seniors. Theresa is currently serving on the Michigan City School Board of Trustees, Indiana Black Expo, (Michigan City Chapter) Board and the Horizon Bank Diversity Business Council.  She served on the board of the Michigan City Boys & Girls Club and she was an ambassador for the Michigan City and LaPorte Chamber of Commerce. In her spare time she volunteers to work in the gift shop at Franciscan Saint Anthony Hospital and she is part of their rockers program.  She works closely with the VCVB and volunteers at our events.

Andy Drake Represents Indiana at the ALTA Lobby Days

Meridian Title's own, Andy Drake, along with Danielle Kaiser, represented the state of Indiana at the American Land Title Association (ALTA) Federal Conference in Indianapolis.

The three topics of focus for ALTA at the conference were:

1) H.R. 4383 - a bill that creates a small business advisory board at the CFPB.

2) Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act. This act expired in 2013 and there is much interest in the benefits of extending the program.
3) GSE reform.
