In less than four decades ICF has grown as an organization from a dozen or so members in 10 countries to more than 5000 members/affiliates in 100 countries. Maintaining momentum and membership services is increasingly difficult and costly for ICF as a volunteer organization. Contributions through the ICF Premium Supporter Program enable the ICF to work more effectively in more countries. ICF can develop camping awareness in more countries and encourage the development of national camping associations in countries where none exist. All ICF Premium Supporter contributions are placed in the ICF Butterfly Fund and are used at the discretion of the ICF Board of Directors for ongoing initiatives.
An ICF Premium Supporter designation is available to any member who makes an additional contribution(s) to their membership renewal or as a separate contribution. The category of ICF Premium Supporter recognizes an additional level of support for ICF activity and work beyond basic membership. ICF Premium Supporter recognition is in place on a permanent basis for all ICF Premium Supporters.
