Fund for Professional Management

Since 1985, the ICMA Fund for Professional Management has supported and promoted the council-manager form and professional local government management thanks to the contributions of many.


Overview

ICMA’s Fund for Professional Management (formerly the Endowment Fund) was established in 1985 to advocate for and promote the council-manager form and professional local government management. The Fund is sustained by contributions from individual ICMA members, state associations, public organizations, nonprofits, and private firms and companies. Donations are used to support form of government campaigns and general advocacy programs.

Fund contributions have been made to more than 100 community groups that have organized to adopt or retain the council-manager form of government or to establish a position of professional local government management.

Today the corpus of the ICMA Fund for Professional Management has reached more than $2 million.
