The Bucknell University Green Fund provides start-up money for sustainability projects that are proposed and implemented by students, faculty and staff.
Money from the Green Fund will help pay for new sustainability projects that are proposed and implemented by members of the campus community. Over time, savings from approved projects will be reinvested in the fund, and fundraising will continue. || Curious about our current funds?
With your help, the Green Fund will support many small and large sustainability projects, and more and more members of our community will be engaged in reducing the University's environmental footprint. || Make a gift to the Green Fund now.
Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to submit sustainability project proposals for funding consideration by the Bucknell Green Fund. After proposals are submitted and reviewed by the Bucknell Green Fund committee, they will be forwarded to the Campus Greening Council (CGC). The CGC will have oversight responsibility and final governance for project approvals.
Many other colleges and universities have established successful green funds, including the Carleton College Sustainability Revolving Fund, the University of Vermont Clean Energy Fund, the Harvard Green Campus Loan Fund, the Macalester College Clean Energy Revolving Fund, and the University of Michigan Energy Conservation Measures Fund.
