Foundation for Intentional Community

The Foundation for Intentional Community (FIC) has over 35 years of partnership with hundreds of intentional communities around the world. At a time when people are desperate for more social connection and answers to complex problems, intentional communities offer hope in an increasingly broken world.

What is an intentional community?

FIC defines an intentional community as a group of people who have chosen to live together or share resources on the basis of common values.

You may have heard of a commune, ecovillage, cohousing, coliving or student coop. These are all types of intentional communities. Intentional communities model more cooperative, sustainable and just ways of life. FIC curates a directory of over 1,000 communities worldwide, as well as supplies resources, runs educational events and promotes community classifieds.
