What is Responsible Wealth?

The Responsible Wealth Project is a network of business leaders, investors, and inheritors in the richest 5% of wealth and/or income in the U.S. who believe that growing inequality is not in their best interest, nor in the best interest of society. 

As beneficiaries of economic policies tilted in their favor, Responsible Wealth members feel a responsibility to join with others in examining and changing the corporate and government policies that widen the economic gap. As wealthy and upper-income individuals, members speak out — in Congress, in the media, and in corporate boardrooms — for progressive taxes and greater corporate accountability.

The Responsible Wealth Project is a project of United for a Fair Economy — an organization that supports workers organize and advocate for policies that make our economy more fair and equitable. Responsible Wealth and United for a Fair Economy make a powerful partnership — one that challenges decision makers and politicians to act in the best interests of the people our economy is supposed to serve. By becoming a member of the Responsible Wealth Project, you are able to use your unique voice to support a variety of progressive groups working on many economic, racial, and social justice issues.
