Community Wealth-Building Models

Brief

Community Wealth-Building Models

Abstract

There is momentum for new and creative mechanisms to expand community ownership, enable community-led investment decisions, and generate revenues from community-based assets that can further local ownership and wealth-building in communities. In addition to individual and institutional wealth creation, community wealth-building models can embrace a range of social outcomes associated with projects such as job creation, environmental sustainability, and health improvements. Bringing these models to life will require navigating across domains and bringing partners together in novel ways. In this brief, we outline four models for community wealth-building and highlight projects that fall into each category.
