ICMA’s Fund for Professional Management (formerly the Endowment Fund) was established in 1985, to advocate and promote the council-manager form and professional local government management. The Fund is sustained through contributions from individual members, state associations and organizations. Fundraised dollars are used to support civic education, council-manager adoption and retention campaigns.
The Fund has provided financial assistance to citizens’ groups in more than 100 communities since 1994 as they worked to adopt or retain council-manager government and educate citizens about the value of professional management.
Educating Our Citizens
ICMA is committed to cultivating the next crop of local government leaders. Specifically, the Fund supports civic education campaigns that expose the next generation to the role and value of professional local government.
