Bale LogoA Center for Local Economy Initiatives

Grounded in gratitude and deep awareness of our planetary challenge, BALE (Building A Local Economy) engages in its grassroots community work from our home in the White River watershed of Vermont. BALE believes we needed to build appropriately scaled solutions from the ground up, taking back, as much as possible, our economy, our culture, and our democratic instruments by re-injecting humanity and authentic relationships into all that we do. Bringing all folks, respectfully, to this awareness is the great challenge of our time. BALE sees itself as a very small part of an emerging global story… working for both practical on-the-ground solutions as well as committing to an inside-out approach to fundamental social change.


OPPORTUNITY & A  DEADLINE:

BALE (Building A Local Economy) is one week away from the conclusion of a matching grant opportunity… and we’re shy $3,000 of maxing it out (it is a $25,000 total match opportunity, so we have done well).
Still, we are hoping to call this a total success, which is why we ask you, now, if you can support the good work that has emerged out of this small, local, and powerful organization.
I know well that many other groups are in the same stretch to meet their goals (and I wish them all well), yet I feel we have an opportunity to build a strong, meaningful force in the communities of the White River region that really is about long-term resilience… and that’s the very unique place that BALE fits into… and offers to the community.
Can you offer support now? There is an online way to do it immediately (CLICK HERE) or sending a check to the address: P.O. Box 211 South Royalton, VT 05058. Our deadline is June 30!
We will be most grateful. Many thanks.
