Rising Places is a new RECONOMICS Institute initiative, going live at RisingPlaces.org on January 2, 2023.
As a Patron, you gift FREE permanent access to our leading-edge tools for all residents and leaders of a community.
One benefit is a customized, constantly-updated (by local feedback), 6-step roadmap to revitalization and resilience.

Any business wanting to serve a geographic market should become the local RISING PLACES Patron. It might be the best goodwill marketing investment we’ve made: far more efficient than advertising!

Giving a community RISING PLACES
is like giving all of your friends
a free lifetime gym membership.

As with exercise equipment, every time a local resident or leader uses our tools, your community builds strength, health, beauty and resilience.

As with a gym membership, people can use our RISING PLACES Tools whenever they want, and as often (or seldom) as they want.

Only one Patron per place: Act now to be a local hero.

YOUR RISING PLACES PATRON FEE IS ONLY ONE-TIME:
Your one-time contribution makes you a RISING PLACES Patron: a champion of resilient, inclusive economic growth, natural resource regeneration, and disaster preparedness.

Patrons will appear in our publicity and articles, as well as on the Patrons page at RisingPlaces.org.

There are many RISING PLACES Patrons, but communities have only one Local Patron, so it's first-come, first-served.

Are you a real estate investor or redeveloper?

FUNDERS

RISING PLACES community accreditation helps state/federal agencies, foundations and redevelopers find the best counties, cities and neighborhoods to invest their resources.

LEADERS

The process of getting accredited helps local governments create the factors needed to achieve accreditation, boosting the success, ROI and social responsibility of renewal efforts.

RESIDENTS

Our RISING PLACES Tools enable residents to help their community get accredited, creating brighter local future for all by restoring economic, social and environmental justice.

ORGANIC GROWTH OR ARTIFICIAL STIMULATION?
There’s more to renewing a place than simply writing a check.

Many places try to woo investors and employers by artificially manufacturing confidence in their future.
They try to create the illusion of progress, often wasting millions on marketing campaigns. On a smaller scale,
the checks pay for glossy planning documents (quickly shelved), or for downtown banners and planters.

RISING PLACES Tools use modern technology to manufacture confidence in your local future the old-fashioned way:
earning it via steady, measurable, home-grown progress.

Where public and private funders find great places to grow resilient, equitable economies.
Where local public and private leaders create great places in which to live, work & invest.
