WHEN: 28 November 2017

WHERE: Everywhere. Organizations all over the world participate

HOW: Online at

On this global day of giving, we are grateful for people like you who choose to support our mission to promote project management for social good®. We are focused on building PM knowledgeable youth, PM capable nonprofits, and a PM ready workforce.  Watch a video about our efforts!

PM Knowledgeable Youth

Project management skills have been valuable in your life. What if you had learned them earlier? Do you remember your favorite teacher?

At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we’re dedicated to teaching project management skills to young people and teachers around the world — giving them the tools and processes they can use to make a difference in their own communities.

PM Capable Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations do so much good in our world.

At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we know they can be even more efficient and effective at accomplishing their missions if they deploy project management skills.

That’s why we work to build the project management capability of nonprofit and non-governmental organizations, especially in recovery efforts to rebuild after disasters strike.

Your generosity will be enable us to further extend our profession beyond the business setting — to youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organization (NGO) leaders worldwide.

A gift to PMIEF of just $25 by year-end will have a ripple effect on the youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organizations (NGOs) we work with who make a difference in our communities every day!


Together we’ll change the world, one project at a time!

I made a commitment last year to join the PMIef at the Leadership Society level after realizing that the unique work they do to broaden awareness of our profession, the support they provide to teachers interested in promoting our profession in schools, the doors they open for people needing the right skills to succeed, and the hope they give to survivors of disasters and people of need, isn't being provided by anyone else. It is up to all of us, as project management practitioners and professionals, to shape the future of project management and to give back to the profession that has given so much to each of us. Please...take this opportunity to get engaged in this noble cause. If you can't give financially, get involved at your Chapter level in a social project or email someone at the PMIef and tell them you'd like to volunteer your talents! If you can give, please know that your money is well-spent and directed at the most pressing of problems facing our world.

Thanks Paul. I agree on getting involved in a social project.

This is a great initiative Marjorie - Thanks for sharing. Everyone should get involved in this social project.

I am committed to the $25 for this year.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
