Trading for charity

Our biggest charity event returns July 16. Harnessing our advanced trading skills over 24 hours, IMC will donate our global trading revenue to support Room to Read’s literacy program in South Africa, Tanzania, and India. This initiative trains teachers, builds libraries, creates classroom materials, and publishes high-quality, local language children’s books.

Team Liquid will once again join IMC by calling in their top players from around the world for an epic 24-hour gaming livestream to raise more awareness and funds for Room to Read.

IMC has proudly supported Room to Read’s mission to end illiteracy across the globe for the past 8 years, donating more than $27m so far. Our contributions have helped train 23,700 teachers and librarians, distribute 1.9 million books, and benefit 3.2 million children through access to a quality education.

In 2023, we renewed our partnership with Room to Read for an additional five years, with the commitment to donate $30 million in 2024-2028. With this next phase, we aim to provide books and other resources for nearly 5.7 million more children in Africa and India by 2030 and support lasting improvements in education systems in the developing regions where Room to Read works.

Join us as we trade and game to empower the next generation through education.

In 2023, IMC traders, developers and support staff visited schools in India, South Africa and Tanzania that are supported by Room to Read.
