What's New At IPM?

Many of the same supporters who seeded IPM’s special matching gift campaign last year, have stepped up again this year! Thanks to their extraordinary generosity, another campaign is currently underway, and we are asking you to  join us in matching their commitments, up to $100,000, as we coordinate our continued COVID response.

Please consider designating your gift to our $100,000 Annual Fund Matching Gift Challenge. Learn more about this Special Appeal.

For current information on how our Project Partners are responding to the pandemic, check out our Covid-19 updates.


For regular updates and announcements, subscribe to our E-Connections email newsletter!

We also publish a limited run print publication. Connections is mailed to over 5,000 donors and friends worldwide. To add yourself to this mailing list, please contact Ilze Fender at or +1.866.932.4082.

Annual Events

Join us to celebrate and learn from IPM’s Project Partners and all those whose dedication makes our work possible.

Live events are currently on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. We look forward to gathering in person when safe and appropriate.

IPM's Annual Luncheon, Cleveland

Our Annual Luncheon – held each year in Cleveland – provides an opportunity for local supporters to gather and learn more about IPM’s work. This event features a keynote speaker from one Region of Focus, and is where we present the David N. Westcott Outstanding Volunteer Award, the Kathleen T. Mink Project Partner Award, and the Richard E. Sering Award, to those who foster the same dedication to promoting global justice, peace and hope as Rev. Sering did for over 30 years as a friend and supporter of IPM.

One Night for One World

Previously known as Namaste, this cultural celebration event – held each Spring in Cleveland – is a chance for IPM family and friends to honor the work of our Project Partners. Attendees can expect food, music, dancing, handicrafts, a silent auction, and other activities for those of all ages.

Annual St. Louis Donor Appreciation Luncheon

In recognition of IPM’s remarkable history, we host this donor appreciation event each year in St. Louis, Missouri – the city of our founding. In 2008, we presented the first Mayer-Strege Award, named for founders, and it has since become an annual tradition. This luncheon is a great introduction to our founding mission for those new to IPM.
