Grassroots Economics is a non-profit foundation. We implement our programs through investors, sponsors and partners that support our programs from time to time. We are seeking support to both spread our programs and to deepen economic resilience in communities already using Community Currencies through increasing health, education and trade opportunities.

For year end financial audits, or direct bank wiring instructions or more information please contact us. Also please take the time to contact us and tell us about yourself and where you want your donation directed so we can put your name on our sponsors page.
