Letter from the President and Executive Director All of us at the Woods Hole Research Center are proud that this year WHRC was recognized as the world’s #1 Climate Change Think Tank by the International Center for Climate Governance. (Of course, having joined WHRC after the fact, I crow about this award without having done anything to earn it!) It’s always great to be “number one,” naturally, but this award is especially gratifying because it is based on success in exactly the areas where I would like our Center to excel: scientific excellence, extent of involvement in the policy process, and effectiveness in disseminating the results of our work. It’s heartening to be recognized as successful, but to remain that way we must constantly strive, and continually innovate. That means staying at the forefront in our science, finding new ways to engage policymakers, and exploiting new and old media alike to get our message to as many people as possible. Each of these is challenging, and to remain effective we must succeed at all three. None of this will be possible without the generous support of donors who share our conviction that the challenge of climate change can be met only by wise policies that are informed by the best science. Helping that to happen is our goal, and there’s nothing more important. The best legacy we can leave our kids and grandkids is a healthy planet. Thanks for your interest and support.

Statement of Financial Position Fiscal Year 2014 Highlights In Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14), the Woods Hole Research Center received another unmodified (unqualified) audit opinion from the external audit firm of Calibre CPA Group, with no management comments or deficiencies, demonstrating, once again, the integrity and diligence of our Finance office.
FY14 was a challenging year that resulted in a decline in the Center’s total revenue by 7% and in total net assets by 3% from FY 2013. We are grateful to the Board of Directors and our donors who demonstrated their commitment to WHRC through an increase in contributions totaling $2.1 million in FY14. Nearly a quarter of the total WHRC income came from these unrestricted donations, which were vital in carrying the Center through this difficult year.
Historically, the majority of WHRC’s annual revenue has come from US government grants. Ever-increasing federal budget cuts coupled with greater competition from a wider variety of organizations has led to a decline in government support for science. In FY14, US government grants represented 55.5% of WHRC’s total revenue. Support from individuals and foundations made up 34.6% of total Center income. In addition, the Center’s investment income increased by $85,871 (11%) over FY13. Halfway through FY15, WHRC has a new president, a renewed mission and an expanding staff. Although it is premature to announce that FY15 will show a turnaround in finances, the addition of several scientists, larger donations than at this time in 2014, and other indicators point to a financially brighter 2015.

George Perkins Marsh Society Born in 1801, George Perkins Marsh was the first to draw attention to the notion that the natural menace to nature was humans themselves. He published his ideas in a book called Man and Nature in 1864, to wide acclaim. Still in print, it continues to influence our vision of the natural world. The Society, named in his honor, recognizes friends who have elected to partner in the Center’s future by supporting the Center through a life income gift, retirement plan, life insurance policy, or bequest.
