Basic questions about our code of ethics, our needs and who we are.

Who Are We?

IMBY is a non-profit organization located in the United States of America. The organization primarily provides financial assistance to children in need around the world including the United States. Areas of needs where support is provided are schooling, meals, building of schools, Health centers and water supplies. As part of our patriotic duty we also support our veterans in the United States of America.

Projects are solely initiated by the organization or we partner with other organizations to bring to the attention of our supporters a dire need. Our supporters and well-wishers are updated monthly with an electronically distributed newsletter with highlights on how various projects are progressing. Complimentary videos to our newsletter are also posted on our site and on our YouTube channel.

What is IMBY’s greatest need?

We are currently in need of ambassadors who will assist in helping to get the word out about the organization and the exciting opportunities. Ambassadors will also be needed for our yearly mission trips to provide assistance with administration etc. during our stay within a designated country decided by IMBY. We are also in need of financial support for our dedicated web team which provides daily maintenance with the up-keep of our web presence and media production. As the ministry grows our demand in this area will increase. Please note funds donated towards any other project of need will receive 100% of such donations. Donations made for upkeep of the ministry are handled separately.

How often do IMBY personnel asses the needs of their projects being funded?

The administration along with its media team will travel at least once or twice per year to inspect projects and determine additional needs. In addition we keep in touch with our project-coordinators throughout the year.

How are donations handled?

As an organization we embrace the values of accountability and transparency as part of our ethical leadership. Board members are therefore provided quarterly statements on donations made and how they are distributed.
