Eighty (80) to ninety (90) percent of WISR’s annual income is from student tuition. Nevertheless, from time to time, WISR has benefited greatly from contributions from Board members, alumni, friends and even a couple of currently enrolled students.

In the past decade, WISR received a substantial, three-year grant from the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, and also funding for contract work with such groups as the Bay Area Black United Fund, Neighborhood House of North Richmond and Ecocity Builders [the latter through a grant from Bay Area Air Quality Management District].

From 1980 – 1983, WISR received a three-year grant from the US Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE)–to serve as a nationwide demonstration project on the teaching, learning and use of action-research.
