How does the green fund work?

The Green Fund is comprised of 5-10 committee members and a WSA liason. All 6 are voting members of the Fund and will sometimes seek the expertise of Jen Kleindeinst in the Office of Sustainability. Our goal is to fund projects that traverse the broad definitions of environmental sustainability that we hope to foster on campus, even if the environmental focus of the initial proposal requires refining. We will meet with every group that submits a proposal and work with them to strengthen their environmental message and expand the reach of their project throughout Wesleyan.

 

Q: What if I think my project is too expensive?

A: We've funded projects from $50 to $20,000. If you have a great idea, we are willing to work with you to make it a reality. We encourage you to apply no matter the proposed cost. You can also check out these additional sources of funding: the SBC, Adelphic Fund, various academic departments, physical plant, and the Patricelli Center. 

Q: Who is eligible to submit proposals to the Green Fund?

A: All current students, faculty, and staff of Wesleyan University.

Q: What is the role of the Green Fund Committee?

A: To promote awareness of the Green Fund, to review project proposals and to allocate the funds to the projects that best fit the priorities of the Green Fund Committee. The Committee will also advise and assist applicants on early project planning and research.
