Increasing Impact: People and Place at the Center

Kelly Ryan opens her essay with a definition of what it means for a community to be “investable," a resident-driven endeavor that starts with believing their place merits investments. What follows is a process for residents to integrate and utilize all types of capital beyond money. Ryan brings this community investment strategy to life as she describes the successful, multi-year effort to rebuild and renew a former mill town in Wisconsin – with still more work to do.
