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.
