Giving back – it’s the best part of who we are. We’ve thrown some of the best events. But the thing we are hands-down most proud of is the work we’ve done that changes people’s lives. As a company, we believe in giving back, and the best way we can do that is to do what we do best to benefit the causes we love.
Throughout the years, we have volunteered time, donated in-kind and monetary, and supported, in a variety of ways, those organizations, charities, and causes that work hard to make a real difference in our communities. Some of those that mean a great deal to us are Asian Business Association Los Angeles, Japanese American National Museum, Asian Pacific Community Fund, California Events Coalition, Five Acres, Union Station Homeless Services, and more. IMG additionally is a proud sponsor of Entrepreneur Organization’s GSEA, young entrepreneurs as they pursue their goals and dreams.
