The JCF is more than an abstract, impersonal institution - it's a community of myth-minded individuals - and the Associate Program lies at the heart of this community.

Key to that partnership is a sense of participation and play.

It costs no money to join.

The Associate Program is the heart of the JCF. When you register to become an Associate, you make a basic commitment to contribute in some way to support the mission of the Foundation. Your contributions may include participating in Coversations of a Higher Order, suggesting mythological resources to be included on our site, volunteering your time for one of our projects, and taking part in our many virtual community activities.

We also appreciate your financial contributions which help us to grow this web site, further our work on the creation of the JCF Digital Works Collection, and continue to make the works of Joseph Campbell available to people across the globe in over a dozen languages. The JCF is a small organization with a large outreach. It is through the support of our Associates that we are able to continue to share the works of Joseph Campbell. Please consider joining our community - registration is free, fast, and non-invasive (we never share your information with third parties).
