IMC Charitable foundation

Our purpose

At IMC we believe that businesses and those who work for them should contribute towards a better society. Therefore, we give our time, talent, and money to enrich the lives of people in the communities where we live and work.

What we do

Through our Charitable Foundation we donate for impact, supporting best-in-class charities and organizations that share our commitment to helping young people develop to their fullest potential. At the same time, IMC encourages, empowers and enables its employees to make their own contribution to charities they care about.

Key Programs

Education

The Education Program provides larger, longer-term grants and donations to charities that help underprivileged children and young people in the cities and regions where IMC has offices. The program covers all aspects of talent development, both in and out of school, as well as extra-curricular activities, drawing on IMC’s skills in technology, coding, robotics, and computer science. We were instrumental in establishing successful charities like IMC Weekendschool, in the Netherlands, and IMC Sky High, in Sydney.

Make-Your-Mark

The Make-Your-Mark Program is about the choices and decisions of our employees. All IMC employees are encouraged to volunteer at least once a year. IMC supports their commitment and dedication with grants or matching donations to the charities that they hold dear, often funding local projects close to where they work.

Trading for Charity

Trading for Charity involves donating the proceeds of a single trading day to a global project that matches our focus on developing the talents and improving the prospects of children around the world. Most recently we donated to a project by Room to Read in Tanzania, funding reading and writing instruction, school construction, and publication of local language children’s books to help students there learn the essential skills of reading. Previously we marked our 25th anniversary by supporting “Reading is the Future”, a Save the Children project to improve literacy among Haiti’s schoolchildren in the wake of the 2010 earthquake.
