The Ray Marshall Center’s work is funded primarily through project-based grants and contracts. This type of funding varies from year to year and is tied to the production of prescribed deliverables. While the Center continues to seek such funding, we welcome contributions toward general operating support from our friends to enable us to:
- Create longer-term plans and develop more ambitious projects
- Innovate and stay on the cutting edge of policy research
- Assert an even greater leadership role in conducting and disseminating research findings
- Aid policymakers in strengthening labor markets and developing new opportunities for low-income workers
- Offer invaluable mentoring and research opportunities for promising students
In addition to general operating funds, the Center also seeks financial support for the Ray Marshall Endowment, which was established in 1999 to honor former U.S. Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall, the Center’s founder. Funds from the Ray Marshall Endowment are used to support Center operations. Direct contributions or larger, multi-year gifts may be designated for the Endowment. In addition, planned gifts can be made through bequests, estates or trusts. These legacy gifts ensure that, even in lean times, the Ray Marshall Center will continue to serve as one of the most prominent research centers in the nation focused on workforce and education policy.
Tax-deductible donations to the Ray Marshall Center may be made online via the University of Texas at Austin’s Online Giving portal.
