Each year, IMA selects a charitable organization to support. IMA's Philanthropic Task Force is established solely to support the efforts and duties to make our charity campaigns successful.
The gracious volunteer work from the task force and the generous contributions from IMA members have generated colossal amounts of relief and assistance to our chosen charities.
IMA encourages its members to participate in our charity campaigns by volunteering, fundraising, awareness promotion and donating.
We are partnering with Give Kids The World, Inc (GKTW) as the 2017 Summit philanthropic initiative.
IMA summit attendees will have the opportunity to help fulfill dreams by donating cash, gift cards, and merchandise leading up to and throughout the Summit. What difference will my gift make?
Give Kids The World (GKTW) is a nonprofit organization that exists only to fulfill the wishes of all children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the world to experience a memorable, joyful, cost-free visit to Central Florida’s attractions, and to enjoy the magic of Give Kids The World Village for as long as there is a need.
Give Kids the World Village is a 79-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Orlando. The Village and its community partners provide children and their families accommodations in fully-furnished villas, transportation, tickets to theme parks, meals, daily entertainment and much more.
