The mission of the Bucknell Green Fund is to encourage, through a revolving loan fund, global sustainability on campus by funding innovative projects that demonstrate environmental leadership and economic benefit. The fund empowers Bucknell and its students to build a sustainable community by fostering local projects that further the worldwide movement for a sustainable future. As an independent fund administered by the Bucknell Green Fund Committee, the Green Fund supports renewable energy, energy and water efficiency, waste reduction and other cost-saving projects that demonstrate sustainable design and operation.
The Bucknell University Green Fund serves three primary purposes, to:
- Promote campus environmental sustainability
- Reduce annual operating expenses
- Serve as an educational tool for faculty, staff, students and community members
The Bucknell Green Fund is managed by the Green Fund Committee, a group comprised of faculty, staff and students who promote the fund and review applications for projects.
