interpublic group is
in the community
IPG Corporate and its companies are client and community oriented. We strive for a culture of inclusion and work to improve the communities where we live and work. Our employees volunteer at community organizations, support cultural institutions, provide pro bono work for not-for-profit organizations, and support educational institutions.
IPG donated $1 million toward a development campaign for the Virginia Commonwealth University Brandcenter, making us a lead donor to the nationally acclaimed graduate advertising school. Interpublic is a corporate member of several local groups, including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Paley Center for Media, and the Lincoln Center Corporate Fund. In addition, many of our senior level executives serve on boards of cultural or community organizations such as the T. Howard Foundation, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the James Lenox House Association, and CASA, the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.
Each year, IPG corporate employees give of their time and resources to many worthwhile causes. This includes “adopting” military families during the holiday season, through Hope for the Warriors and the Wounded Warrior Project, not-for-profits that provide aid to members of the military and their families
IPG has an ongoing relationship with the New York chapter of the Ronald McDonald House (RMH), a national organization that provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at local hospitals. IPG annually hosts a themed Summer Fair for the children which include games, crafts, face-painting, prizes, refreshments, and a visit from Ronald McDonald himself!
The Food Bank for New York City is one of the country's largest food banks; through its network of more than 1,000 charities and schools citywide, the Food Bank provides approximately 64 million free meals per year for New Yorkers in need. Every year, IPG Corporate employees give their time to volunteer at the Food Bank for New York City in The Bronx. As a group, employees re-pack groceries and meals for those in need. Their hard work feeds the thousands of families across New York City who are in need of a warm meal.
Each year our Omaha offices partner with the United Way of the Midlands to provide funding for over 120 programs that focus on addressing basic needs for poverty stricken individuals and families. Through IPG’s campaign, employees participate in exciting events that raise money and build awareness about United Way and how we as individuals and as a company can take a stance against poverty.
IPG employees have also volunteered their time and lent expertise to organizations including Brush Up Nebraska, Habitat for Humanity, the Harlem YMCA, Howard University’s Adopt-A-Team Program, and the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.
