Forty years ago, IFC was born of the conviction that diversity only strengthens the unity of our communities. Today, the need for transformational unity is even more important.

As members of the Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Latter-day Saint, Muslim, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh and Zoroastrian faiths, we are resolved to build an inclusive community so that one day people of all religions and cultures will feel welcomed, respected, and appreciated for their common values and for their diverse beliefs and practices.



IFC’s mission is to create an inclusive community of diverse faiths in our nation’s capital that is focused on the values that unite us and the distinctions that make each faith unique.
