PMI Educational Foundation Mission and Vision

PMIef Project Management Institute Educational FoundationThe PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF) is a non-profit, public charitable organization and the philanthropic arm of the Project Management Institute (PMI). PMIEF views project management as a critical skill for everyone, especially the 7 billion people around the world who are unfamiliar with it. While PMI focuses on making project management indispensable for business results, PMIEF focuses on bringing the power of project management to the rest of society.

Our programs focus on three main goals:

  • PM Ready Workforce - Build a better prepared workforce through academic scholarships, awards,and professional development scholarships.
  • PM Knowledgeable Youth - Prepare youth for success in life through educational resources, programs and workshops in project management.
  • PM Capable Nonprofits/NGOs - Use PMIEF grants, scholarships and workshops to help people in need by aiding disaster relief, nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations to better utilize their limited resources.

Our ability to accomplish this work is directly related to the support of others. Volunteers give their time to review and select scholarship and award recipients, create new educational resources and communicate to others about PMIEF’s programs. Donors support scholarships, awards, grants and the creation of resources.

Since we are a global organization, we seek partnering opportunities with PMI communities as well as other major charitable and service organizations that have the capability to expand PMIEF resources.
