Become a Project Partner

IPM identifies and selects community-based, interfaith projects around the world for funding and technical support by linking them in partnership with individuals, families, congregations, schools, and like-minded organizations around the world. IPM looks for projects that address the root causes of injustice and work for social change in three target demographics: children, women, and youth. In doing so we value the following principles:

  • Shared Partnership, where mission is a two-way street between projects and donors
  • Global Awareness that we are part of an inter-connected world community
  • Personalization, where projects work in direct partnership with donors and friends
  • Facilitation of work across borders of faith, culture and economic privilege

IPM does not generally accept requests for capital, endowment, conferences or denominational evangelization.
