We feel it is both our duty and our privilege to return something to the communities in which we operate. It’s why we sponsor cultural events, scientific pursuits and children in need. We not only provide financial support, but also share our knowledge and practical support through our active board membership of several NGOs.
For example, our Amsterdam office has been a proud sponsor and contributor of the IMC Weekendschool for many years. This worthy cause provides extra education to socially disadvantaged children aged 10 to 14. In addition to financial support and helping out during field trips, our people teach what it means to be a lawyer and what it takes to study law.
In Brussels, we sponsor Toekomst-Atelier de l’Avenir, the Belgian equivalent of the IMC Weekendschool. They offer extra-curricular, learning activities to motivated children from 10 to 14 who live in in the disadvantaged neighborhoods in Brussels. The idea is not to provide them with extra lessons, but to inspire them for their future through the passion and knowledge of those who have succeeded in their profession.
Across our offices around the world, we are proud to contribute to society and we will never cease to invest our time, money and energy in this area.
