The Wilmington Alliance

Two established, highly influential organizations driving the revitalization, economic growth and future opportunities for the city of Wilmington—the Wilmington Leaders Alliance (WLA) and the Wilmington Renaissance Corporation (WRC)—recently created the new Wilmington Alliance to make an even greater impact on Delaware’s largest city.


“This is about a new, stronger and evolved vision for our City—one that is respectful of the progress we’ve driven so far, responsive to what it means to live and do businesses in Wilmington right now and focused on taking the most innovative approaches in order to build a secure, prosperous future, our success will come from the strength of our collaborations.”

-Executive Director of the Wilmington Alliance, Renata B. Kowalczyk
