Trading for charity

An entire day’s trading profit is donated to support Room to Read

Our biggest charity event returns on June 15. IMC will donate the entire day’s trading profits to help children in historically low-income communities pursue a quality education. And then there’s Team Liquid…

Team Liquid will again join IMC by calling in their top players worldwide for an epic 24-hour gaming live stream. Together, we’re creating a more equitable world by investing in a generation of young learners.

Room to Read is a nonprofit organization that believes World Change Starts with Educated Children®.

Since its launch in 2000, Room to Read has reached over 38 million children and has worked in 23 countries. Our donations so far have helped Room to Read:

  • Train 27,300 teachers and librarians,
  • Distribute 1.8 million books, and
  • Benefit 2.3 million children through access to quality education.

IMC and Team Liquid will pull out all the stops this year to empower the next generation of changemakers. Join us as we trade and game to help transform the lives of children in Tanzania, South Africa, and India.

School visit

In July 2018 a team from IMC - traders, developers and support staff - visited four schools around Dar es Salaam, capital of Tanzania, to meet the children and their parents, and teachers and government representatives, and to see first-hand the positive impact their donation is having.
