Pacific Rim Institute Purchases 175 acre campus in Central Whidbey

(June 10, 2015) It is official! On December 15, 2014, all the final documents were signed and the Pacific Rim Institute gained the title to the beautiful Pacific Rim Campus.  Thank you to everyone that donated, volunteered, and spread the word!

To read more about this transfer and the continued partnership with Au Sable, check out our NEWS page!

One reason that we were able to accomplish this by the deadline was due to a very generous zero-interest loan to tide us over.  And now, thanks to the Bradshaw-Knight Foundation, we were able to repay the loan in June 2015! We're now over half way toward our Purchase Campaign goal of $50,000.

Can you help? Your donation will enable us to complete some important property maintenance and upgrades that we delayed last year.

To make a donation, you can do so on our website, or you can send funds to:
Pacific Rim Institute
180 Parker Road
Coupeville, WA 98239
