A New Look for the Foundation for Intentional Community

A New Look for the Foundation for Intentional Community

In March 2019 I started work as the Communications Director at the Foundation for Intentional Community, an organization I’ve served on the Board of since 2014. I led the brand transformation for this 30+ year old organization – including a new name, logo, style guide, and website. Check it out at ic.org! Learn about my branding and marketing services here.

Here’s a letter I wrote when I started in the role… 

A letter from the new Communications Director, Cynthia Tina

In the face of global crises of unimaginable scales and complexity, our strength is found in simple local solutions. Weaving relationships and choosing to take action together defies rampant isolation in modern life. Social isolation is a human health epidemic.

Community is the antidote.

Intentional communities show how the power of cooperation can create better lives. 100,000 people in the US are estimated to live in communities designed for social enrichment, environmental responsibility, and economic equity. We need to support these solutions and amplify their stories.

For 30 years, the Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) has served as a platform for communities to connect with each other as well as a hub for people discovering community for the first time. We are committed to creating space within our movement for voices we don’t normally hear and communicating to the wider public the value of life in community.

Community is a pathway to a better world.

The Communications Director is a newly formed position reflecting a deepening commitment to FIC’s mission — to support and promote the development of intentional communities, as a pathway towards a more sustainable, cooperative, and just world.I have served on the FIC Board since 2015 and I’m delighted to step into a new role. As FIC’s Communications Director, I will be updating and improving our online presence – our Facebook page, growing collection of videos on YouTube, weekly Newsletter, Communities Magazine, and of course, the wealth of information and resources at ic.org.

Get ready for a transformed brand and greatly enhanced website launching later this spring!

Expand the movement.

All these enhancements are made possible through the on-going support of our Members and Donors. Consider making a gift so we can continue to expand our capacity and support a thriving communities movement.

You can get in touch with me directly at connect@ic.org or by sending a message on our Facebook Page. I look forward to connecting with you soon!

In service to a better world,

Hi, I’m Cynthia.

I’m the community matchmaker, here to help you find an intentional community to call home. I’ve visited hundreds of communities around the world — ecovillages, cohousings, agrihoods, housing coops…
