Pacific Rim Institute Purchases 175 acre campus in Central Whidbey

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.  We will continue to raise funds over the next few months to repay this loan and accomplish the maintenance and upgrades that we are delaying.


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
