IMG Trust Company is proud to announce its partnership with the innovative collaborative philanthropy programme ‘Pathways to Change’. This groundbreaking initiative, hosted by philanthropy accelerator Greenwood Place, aims to alleviate poverty in the global south, with IMG’s support focusing on the Caribbean region.

This commitment marks a significant step for IMG in their evolving philanthropic journey.

Peter Goddard, Principal of IMG Trust said:

“It is a privilege and a profound responsibility to commit to creating a world where everyone has the chance for a healthy, productive life. Being part of the Pathways to Change Programme is not just an opportunity to support vital charitable projects in the fight against poverty, but also an opportunity to deepen our understanding of philanthropy under the guidance of some the world’s foremost experts in the field.”

The Pathways to Change programme has been designed by Greenwood Place with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  It offers a series of educational events throughout the year hosted by industry experts and focusing on issues of multi-dimensional poverty, covering topics from ‘impactful foundations’ to ‘the power of advocacy’.  These events create valuable platforms for dialogue and learning, which IMG will leverage to enhance their philanthropic investment strategies and maximise the social impact of their initiatives.

IMG has pledged to invest at least GBP100,000 to charitable projects aimed at eradicating poverty in the Caribbean. This represents a substantial effort for the company, which formed in 2022 and recently celebrated its first year in business. 

IMG’s commitment to philanthropy has been celebrated recently with their successful thought leadership series featuring prominent figures in the field, including two OBEs.

IMG specialises in philanthropy and has significant experience establishing charitable trusts, drafting policies, and administering charities, particularly in medical research, education, and mental health care.
