Vision: Balle works to build an ecosystem that accelerates the momentum toward an economy that works for all. Balle’s work is grounded in deep engagement with the ‘Local Economy Leadership Network’ across the U.S. and Canada, who are using Balle’s ‘Local Economy Framework’ to create healthy, equitable communities.

Impact: Through Community Investment, the first cohort of the Local Economy Foundation Circle committed to aligning more than $2.5 billion in collective investment assets to support local economic growth. The first four cohorts of Balle fellows include 76 fellows that serve 87,500 local businesses and impact another 1.5 million people through policy.
