Donate to the FIC
We humbly ask for your immediate support to ensure the FIC will survive in 2023 and thrive in 2024 and beyond.
Every year, close to half a million people visit ic.org seeking insights and community through FIC’s directory, bookstore, and our online programs, forums, and resources. We’re proud to earn the bulk of our annual budget through these unique and valuable resources. And yet, we’re still a nonprofit and we need your support. We need to raise $45k to continue operating and ensure that our directory — which alone costs over $35k/year to maintain — remains free and available to everyone who envisions a more just, resilient, and cooperative world.
The threat of closing our virtual doors after 36 years is real. To get from here to there, we need your financial help TODAY to support our small, yet dedicated team that works tirelessly behind the scenes to make it all happen.
Please help us help you and others to build the future we want and donate today. Your monetary contribution will return to you in the form of deeper connection to other communitarians, access to the knowledge of experts in the movement, and programs that teach others why community and collaboration can heal our planet.
From: $5.00 for 1 year

What Our Donors Say…
Have you noticed that it is getting a little crazy out there? In these times where so many people are acting out of fear and ignorance, feeling alone and powerless, and denying our collective human traumas and climate catastrophes, it has truly been a blessing to interact with other intentional community members, founders, students, teachers and activists. We give special thanks for the sense of inspiration and possibility that we experience regularly from our connections with FIC. Thank you.

Encountering intentional community was a life-changing event. In the 33 years since, I’ve forged deep, enduring friendships, reared twin daughters to adulthood, and enjoyed steadfast partners in caring for self, others, and the Earth. Life has been at once rich and simple. Thank you, FIC, for making the benefits of intentional community accessible for so many.

Thank you for the profound FIC has made on my life. I struggled for years about how to approach joining a community. FIC’s resources and teachers have empowered to start reaching out for help. That is worth more than any monetary donation I could possibly give.
— Harry, FIC Member
Finding the FIC’s platform is comparable to finding a long lost treasure. Not only is it easy to navigate the resources on their website, the leadership of this initiative is well experienced and very attentive to members and potential future ones. Do not underestimate the extent and quality of the information you’ll acquire from one of the many workshops and resources offered.
