IMG Cares

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 AngelesJapanese American National MuseumAsian Pacific Community FundCalifornia Events CoalitionFive AcresUnion 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.
Innovate Marketing Group has been recognized by financial services company Wells Fargo as a community champion, along with five other companies, for its service to the community in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic’s economic challenges.

Did you know about our Digital Course?
We created the ¨Reimagining Fundraising Events for Nonprofits¨ digital course to help fundraisers, nonprofits leaders, and global organizations master fundraising events,
We have seen that too many small nonprofits suffer to sustain themselves because of unsuccessful fundraising campaigns.
The reasons? Staff shortage, tight budgets, inexperienced people planning fundraising events. Plus, Nonprofit executives are too busy doing too many things, wearing too many hats, that they don’t have time to train and develop their talents.
That’s the reason we decided to help. If you represent a nonprofit organization and would like to benefit from the amazing value of this course but do not have the funds, now you can apply for a grant. 

We are on a mission to help ONE MILLION nonprofits!
