We believe that community wealth includes many aspects, including economic prosperity, positive relationships and experiences, family, sense of pride in one’s community, talents, ideas, health, art, culture, nature, integrity, and connection to ideals and purpose.
Engaging Anchor Institutions
Community Wealth Building works with placed-based institutions such as hospitals, universities, and municipalities to craft and implement a strategy that focuses on local procurement, local hiring, and local investment.
Cooperatives play a critical role in building community wealth in our communities. CCWB promotes and advances the field of worker cooperatives to create an inclusive economy and better jobs.
Strengthening PoC Entrepreneurship
Local businesses contribute to the well-being of our communities. CCWB works to strengthen the environment by connecting entrepreneurs to technical assistance, affordable capital, and new markets.
