*Philadelphia IFT has elected to participate in a pilot program through IFT. As a part of this program, all members must belong to both IFT and Philadelphia IFT (this will become mandatory in August 2014). If you currently belong to one and not the other, you will be grandfathered in. The prices above include membership to both the IFT and the Philadelphia IFT.

Please welcome our newest members!


We are always looking for volunteers in any capacity.

Please contact Philadelphia IFT at if you are interested. We would love to have you!
