The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia (ELGP) is our region’s independent ‘think-and-do tank

Founded in 1909 by forward-thinking business leaders united by the belief that business has a civic responsibility beyond profit-making, and that it is the citizen’s business to ensure that local government and the local economy work for all.  

Occupying a unique space in the civic ecosystem, at the nexus of the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, the Economy League is a trusted cross-sector convener squarely pointed at driving collaborative solutions to complex civic challenges. 

Our mission is to address critical issues facing Greater Philadelphia by providing impactful research, connecting diverse leaders, and advancing shared solutions.
