Integrated Project Mercy

Giving back is a core principle of Our Mission & Beliefs, the ideals we live by every day. Through Integrated Project Mercy, our employees dedicate their time and talents to their communities while strengthening their relationships with each other. 

Each of IPM’s seven offices selects a different charity to support every quarter, generally focusing on children, education, or the underprivileged. Through these efforts, IPM employees have raised thousands of dollars while contributing hundreds of hours to help those in need.
