Additional MEGlobal-Supported Projects

Brazosport College

In 2018, MEGlobal Americas Inc. made a $1 million contribution to the Brazosport College Foundation to support students seeking to enroll in dual-credit courses at Brazosport College in Lake Jackson, Texas, USA. The contribution builds on MEGlobal’s commitment to sustainability and community success, supporting the educational dreams of local students and the workforce of tomorrow.
As a result of this investment, up to approximately 160 Brazosport Independent School District students per year will be able to enroll in dual-credit courses each academic year at Brazosport College, beginning in 2020.
This gift from MEGlobal provides a sustainable stream of scholarship funds for perpetuity – and also provides an opportunity and the ability for the endowment to grow.

Ellis Bird Farm

MEGlobal is a major sponsor of the Ellis Bird Farm, a working farm and a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of Mountain Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and other native cavity-nesting birds.

Sports include lacrosse, soccer, rugby, football and quidditch, and 2017 will see the installation of a full size exterior basketball court. The 2017 Alberta High School Provincial games are being hosted at the MEGlobal Athletic Park, bringing up to 4,000 players and fans to Lacombe over two days in the fall.

The North West Mounted Police Fort Saskatchewan

Putting the “Fort” in Fort Saskatchewan
The North West Mounted Police Fort Saskatchewan was in operation on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River from 1875 to 1885. Although the original Fort was taken down, the community’s name “stuck” throughout history, and it seemed to be a missing piece in Fort Saskatchewan’s identity. The City of Fort Saskatchewan struck a plan to restore a representation of the Fort and in 2011, MEGlobal made a multi-year funding commitment to the project that has become a source of local pride as well as wider tourist attraction. Today, the Fort Heritage Precinct is a formidable site, providing those who visit with an exciting link to a proud and colourful history. http://www.fortsask.ca/residents/culture/heritage
