Celebration of Service

We Did It! Our 100,000 Hours Goal Has Been Achieved in the Global Celebration of Service

PMI would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all chapters, individuals and organizations who met our goal of 100,000 hours pledged toward the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. We began with a goal of 50,000 hours to commemorate our 50th Anniversary and achieved that number in just a few short months. We announced that we would double the goal to 100,000 during the PMI[R} Global Congress in Dublin, Ireland. With this milestone achieved, we are pleased to make the Global Celebration of Service a regular and ongoing part of what we do at PMI. Our dedication to service and our commitment to supporting the United Nations will continue. We hope that you will join us as we work together toward creating a better future for all.

Pledge now and see the projects others are working on in the Gallery.
