MediRevv Gives is a committee established in early 2018 as a way for MediRevv to honor our community service by putting funds behind our verbal commitment to our employees — that we want to make a difference inside and outside MediRevv's walls. First and foremost, the committee honors requests from MediRevvers who hold a leadership position within a non-profit or who support a "near and dear" cause. Since early this year, MediRevv has made corporate gifts to over forty organizations locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.

“Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.”
We Have More to Give
It's a core focus of MediRevv to support a wide range of community events and non-profit organizations. When we make an impact locally it's great, but it's awesome when we do so on the behalf of our employees who see outreach opportunities in the community and say, "Yes, this is what MediRevv does in times of need."
This is only the beginning, and we have more to give.
