The IMA Foundation provided grants to nearly 50 nonprofit organizations in 2016 but the year was outstanding by any measure. Community events, varied outreach efforts in all our markets and foundation giving all lived up to IMA’s exceptional bar for performance.
Giving both time and financially, IMA associates upheld the mission to make a difference. Overall, 2016 was one for the record books adding to our long history of successful community service.
One of the exciting things about being a part of a rapidly growing company is that we are able to have an even larger impact in the community. Now nearly 700 strong, IMA associates donate thousands of volunteer hours in the communities where we operate. This year we asked our associates to share with us their nonprofit board participation. Not only was the total number of associates serving on nonprofit boards an impressive 10% of the company, but many of those individuals started the nonprofits where they serve as board members. The entrepreneurial spirit of IMA expands the reach of the office walls and is shared in our communities through the creation of organizations solving problems for those in need. It’s humbling to work with so many incredible people who allow IMA to support nonprofits by being more than just a check. IMA associates are strong ambassadors of the IMA brand and truly embrace IMA’s mission to protect assets and make a difference.
