Green Fund

A Student-Led Fund for Sustainability Projects at Willamette University

During the Spring 2014 semester undergraduate students voted in a campus-wide referendum to establish a new "Green Fund" (GF) fee. The GF provides student leadership and funding for projects that engage students and employees to advance social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Proposals can be submitted by undergraduate students, staff, and faculty. We are looking for proposals that will advance social, economic and environmental sustainability at Willamette University and in our community, as well as create opportunities benefiting Willamette undergraduate students.

The 2015-16 committee can be contacted directly by sending an email to
