Green Fund

The Bucknell University Green Fund provides start-up money for sustainability projects that are proposed and implemented by students, faculty and staff. The Green Fund itself is also sustainable — over time, savings from approved projects are reinvested in the fund and then used to fund additional projects.

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:

  1. Promote campus environmental sustainability
  2. Reduce annual operating expenses
  3. 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.
