Support the IFH

For nearly 50 years the International Fellowship House has served a small population of international students living in the Boston area. 100% of the rent collected from these students goes back into making the IFH an incredible place to live. The IFH offers daily meals, yearly retreats and fun events at minimal or no cost to each of the residents. The experience that residents get by living at the IFH is truly one of a kind! Many students walk through these doors and immediately feel a sense of comradery they haven't felt since coming to the US. The IFH is a safe place for discussion, sharing mutual experiences, frustrations and joys. This is more than just a boarding house --- it is a welcoming community of people from all over the world! 


In 2015 we cast a new vision for the IFH and we want you to be a part of it! Over the next 50 years, we plan to expand our reach beyond the walls of the IFH and create more programming for a larger population of international students in the Boston area. There are over 25,000 international students in Boston alone! 


The IFH has shaped the lives of hundreds of students!


The rent money collected each month covers all the basic needs of the IFH. However, this home was built in the late 1800's and there are constant updates and renovations needed to create long term sustainability for this home. We welcome your partnership in keeping the IFH open as a vibrant, safe place for international students and scholars for another 50 years!


Your contribution to the annual fund also helps us reach a broader international student population in Boston by building in more programming and expanding our building space. 


Were you once a student at the IFH? Consider making a gift back to the IFH and join us as we continue to serve the international student population of Boston! 


Were you once an international student studying in in a foreign environment? Do you believe in our vision for international students? Do you see the value in such a community as this? Support us today and help us meet our goals! 


Our goal is to reach $100,000 this year for the annual fund! Gifts to the annual fund will be used in the same year they are donated. The annual fund keeps the IFH running smooth and pays for important expenses like food, house bills, staff and resident programs and retreats. Your contribution, whether large or small, will help get us there! You have an opportunity to be a part of something incredible - join us by making a one time gift, a monthly gift or a gift to an individual project.
