Purpose and Activities

Our Mission: To re-imagine economic realities in communities of color through community wealth building strategies that powerfully leverage people, capital and ideas. Our Vision: An Atlanta where prosperity is shared. Initially established in 2011 as a nonprofit entity created and powered by The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta Wealth Building Initiative (AWBI) adopted Cleveland’s Evergreen Cooperative model to start and incubate local green businesses to address social problems such as the rising level of income inequality, high rates of unemployment, cyclical patterns in prison re-entry or substance use, and business inefficiency. In response to the continuing crisis of inequity confronting Atlanta, in the fall of 2017 the Kendeda Fund and the Annie E. Casey Foundation, in concert with a new set of board members, decided to re-engineer and relaunch the Atlanta Wealth Building Initiative.
