Welcome to the Fellowship for Intentional Community

Community is an essential building block in a cooperative and sustainable world.

The Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the development of intentional communities and the evolution of cooperative culture.Welcome to FIC

Intentional communities are people living together with some shared resources on the basis of explicit common values. Some examples include ecovillagescohousing, land trusts, income-sharing communes, student co-ops, spiritual communities, and more.

Find communities in the Directory, read inspiration and lessons in Communities magazine, and explore books, videos, and games in the Community Bookstore.


Let’s take the FIC to the next level. We need your help.

Accelerate the development of intentional communities. Amplify the impact they have on society.

Foster collaboration in the larger movement towards cooperation, sustainability and social justice!
