Volunteer & Donate

The International Marketplace Coalition exists to promote the revitalization of the Lafayette Square area by creating an environment conducive to sustainable economic development for the benefit of this community, the city of Indianapolis, and the region.

The International Marketplace Coalition is a nonprofit organization comprised of businesses, engaged citizens and community leaders who encourage economic growth and development on the northwest side of Indianapolis. This area has become a vibrant, diverse community and the world is taking notice.​

Global Village Welcome Center

Our most recent project is transforming a recently purchased 56,000 square foot building into the Global Village Welcome Center to create the ultimate cultural destination welcome to everyone. But first, funding is needed to help renovate the space, provide exhibit design and more to help "Shrink the Globe and Create a Village." Since donations are key to our growth and success, please consider donating $10, $25, $50 - whatever amount you are able to give.
