What Makes the IICF Special?
We are a unique nonprofit that brings together an entire industry to work together for the common good. We enable competitors to work side-by-side for their communities. The companies that work through IICF are not doing it to improve their individual company profiles or brands. They are simply doing the right thing.
The IICF raises funds for our grants program, and provides the grants after a diligent review. Funds raised in a community stay in and benefit that community. We encourage volunteer service and provide volunteer activities in the communities we serve.
