iACT’s annual fundraising event, impACT, will shine a light on the  powerful effect creating a space for joy and play can have on children and families experiencing displacement. With over 108 million people forcibly displaced globally, play and joy are often overlooked within the humanitarian response. What iACT has learned from the communities we work with is that even in the darkest of times,  we must always embrace joy. In the next 10 years, iACT will focus on amplifying the voices of the communities that we work along-side and deepening our impact. Your contribution gives you the chance to support transformative refugee and community-led humanitarian action. 

impACT has increasingly become a sold-out event, and we are expecting to reach venue capacity again this year! This event offers approximately 180-200 guests from the South Bay and the Los Angeles community an open bar, dinner, time with friends, and live entertainment throughout the evening. The event also has a unique silent auction and raffle where you can win incredible experiences,  jewelry, art, designer apparel, travel, entertainment, and much more!
