Wilson On The Move


Wilson Economic Foundation, Inc, a 501 (c) 6 corporation more commonly known as Wilson on the Move, was organized 25 years ago to help recruit new industry to Wilson and help existing industry expand.  Wilson on the Move grants are used only as deal-closers to assist new and expanding companies and these companies must meet rigid contractual agreements to provide jobs, salary goals and new investment.  This conservatively managed fund, used on a highly selective basis, has proven to be an important edge in the very competitive arena of economic development.

Over 200 local businesses and individuals are members of Wilson on the Move
