History

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 the Cleveland’s Evergreen Cooperative model to start and incubate local green businesses.  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, relaunched AWBI with a focus on promoting understanding of community wealth building models and elevating the engagement, capacity, and leadership necessary to shape a new economic narrative in Atlanta with community wealth building at its core.
