Let’s light up the world with the power of community.

We live in deeply polarized times.

But we don’t need to be divided. Intentional communities show us how we can come together to create a more cooperative world.

Inside Community Podcast

$5,000 GOAL

The Inside Community Podcast will offer an inside look at all of the beautiful and messy realities of creating and sustaining a community.Β  Get ready for useful and inspiring audio stories to support you on your community journey. Launching in January 2022.


Communities Directory Book

$10,000 GOAL

It’s time for an updated Communities Directory book! This publication will feature the over 1,000 communities listed in the Directory, with fully updated content, guides, charts, and advice for your exploration of the communities network. Five years in the making and set to drop in 2022.


Communitarian Scholarship Fund

$20,000 GOAL

In 2021 we gave out over $10,000 in scholarships to low-income individuals. Now we are doubling down for next year because we believe that access to communitarian training is essential for creating the more cooperative world that we need. Give the gift of knowledge.


It Takes a Village

Intentional communities are critical centers for practicing the cooperative skills that society needs to move forward.

We know that it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes a community to make a village and it takes communitarians to create community.

Now more than ever we need strong intentional communities to overcome the challenges facing our world so that future generations can thrive. We need bold communitarians.

Your support of the FIC is training and empowering communitarians the world over. Thank you for your contribution to the communities movement.

You Can Make a Difference

Have you been inspired by an intentional community? Do you look at the map of communities in the Directory and think — oh, yes, this is what the world needs!? Have you benefited from one of the FIC’s events or courses this past year? Now you can share that community inspiration and practical cooperative skill training with future communitarians. As a non-profit organization, we rely on donations like yours to keep the lights on and keep the spotlight on communities. Our deep appreciation for your support.
