Supporting the Weidenbaum Center

The Murray Weidenbaum Center on the Economy, Government and Public Policy combines academic research with public policy analyses. The Weidenbaum Center relies heavily upon generous donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations.

While an integral part of Washington University, the Weidenbaum Center is responsible for its own financial support.  Only through supporter generosity can we continue our cutting-edge research and public policy programs. Your support is essential. As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, the Center falls under the University's 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. There are many ways to make an investment in the Weidenbaum Center’s activities.

You can give now online using a credit card, make a gift of stock, or mail in a contribution. Designated gifts can also be used to provide support for specific purposes such as named research assistants, forums, or other programs.
