Support for the Center
Since its inception, the activities of the Center have been supported jointly by the public and private sectors.
Donations received from private and not-for-profit sectors have provided the financial support that have covered the direct costs of center programs.
Resources Provided by Western Washington University
Western Washington University has provided the center with office space and storage facilities. The University covers the costs of heating, lighting, and telephone, and, as budgets allow, has also purchased some computer equipment and office furnishings for the center. The Department of Economics has historically provided the center director with two sections of release time from the normal teaching load each year to provide time to direct the activities of the center.
