2019 Donors and Funders

Paycheck Protection Program

We are proud that during a global pandemic, the Stimson Center adapted quickly and continues to serve its mission to promote international security, shared prosperity, and justice around the world. Protecting our team and their livelihoods during this crisis remains our top priority. The coronavirus has inevitably caused funding delays, upended planning, and created new costs. Like most nonprofit charitable organizations, we are concerned about an uncertain economy and future funding environment, which is why it made good business sense to participate in the Paycheck Protection Program. The PPP loan is supporting salaries, healthcare benefits, and other permitted expenses allowed under current legislation. The Center has a robust plan in place to ensure the funds are used appropriately and will rigorously account for all funds, including maintaining those resources in a separate account. Stimson will also use an external audit to verify compliance with the terms of the loan.

The Stimson Center is deeply grateful to the American taxpayer for providing the support that ensures our employees retain financial stability during the coronavirus crisis.
