IMF Grants and DonationsLast Updated: October 20, 2016
IMF Giving Together supports charities in our host city, Washington D.C., and in low-income countries, through monetary grants and in-kind donations.
IMF Giving Together is run by the Civic Program Advisory Committee (CPAC). CPAC members -IMF staff, spouses and retirees- volunteer their time to review all requests for financial and in-kind donations. They often meet with representatives of charities requesting donations and conduct site visits when possible.
CPAC welcomes requests for grants from non-profit organizations working to help the poorest and disadvantaged emerge from very low-income, socially dependent, and other detrimental and dysfunctional situations.
IMF Giving Together funds are for humanitarian purposes only and are separate from the IMF 's financial support for member countries and policy programs.
Charitable grants and staff donations have totaled over $6 million since 1994.
