Local Money Council

The Local Money Council (LMC) is a non-funded, non-funding committee of Sustainable Resources INW.

Mission: To identify and facilitate ways that local investors (especially unaccredited investors) can put their money to work growing sustainable local businesses and jobs in the Spokane region.

We expect local investors to participate because they support the following:

  • Triple Bottom Line: Investing in businesses which expand single bottom line motivation to include ecological and social performance, maximizes long term sustainability.
  • Slow Money: Local investors who are patient, provide nurture capital, seek both qualitative and quantitative returns, make significant impact on the local economy.
  • Locally Owned & Operated: Investing in locally owned and operated businesses which remain locally based, rather than selling out to a non-locally based owner, maintains local sustainability.
  • Local Self-Reliance: Local investments help build a self-reliant, sustainable future for our community by filling the gaps in our local economy, targeting the development of businesses that represent sectors, products, and services that are missing or under-served.

Meetings: The LMC is on hiatus for the Summer. Check out the Events Page for meeting details, agendas, and more this Fall.

Members: Members are volunteers. Businesses and organizations in the Spokane region are encouraged to send representatives to LMC meetings and events. Individuals who support the mission are welcome.
