Every successful organization has the means — and therefore the privilege — to make a difference in the world. This is how we choose to leverage that privilege. Below are some amazing organizations that IMA is proud to support with our time and/or wallets … and we urge you to consider doing the same.
CASA of Philadelphia
“CASAs” are volunteers, appointed by Philadelphia Family Court, who advocate for the most-vulnerable children in the foster care system. For these abused and neglected kids, a CASA is often the most consistent adult presence in their lives — and their tireless advocacy often makes the difference between a tragedy and a success story.
IoH is a non-profit organization that supports young families facing the loss of a parent. Through counseling and other programs, IoH helps families navigate the unthinkable challenges that come with a parent’s terminal illness. And through special events — like getaways to the Magic Kingdom — they provide a sense of hope and community.
WHYY is the Philadelphia region’s leading public media organization and PBS/NPR affiliate. WHYY engages citizens as full partners — in both on-air and “off-air” programs — to advance civic life through storytelling, arts, education and civic dialogue. What would life be like without Fresh Air, American Masters, Sesame Street, etc.? Exactly.
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
In good company.

DSD is working to rollback climate change — on a large scale — by helping large commercial, industrial and municipal organizations harness renewable energies. DSD also supports several mentoring programs at GRID Alternatives, a non-profit that expands solar-energy access and provides young people from diverse backgrounds with valuable experience in the solar industry.
