ICF Foundation Society
Join Now

The ICF Foundation Society is a group of like-minded individuals from around the globe who are passionate about applying coaching to social progress organizations. These generous and forward-thinking donors have made gifts of $500 or more to the ICF Foundation and are instrumental in moving us forward in our mission.

The impact of the Foundation Society members is seen through our pro bono coaching results. In 2018 alone, our founding members provided over $10,000 in support of ICF Foundation projects.

We hope you’ll join in with colleagues and coaches around the globe by becoming an ICF Foundation Society member today.
