The Green Fund provides funding for the implementation of sustainability projects and ideas from and for the Tufts community. Students, faculty, and staff from all of Tufts' campuses are eligible and encouraged to apply for funding. The funds come from the Sustainable Investment Fund’s endowment payout, which refreshes every year, making the program accessible to non-payback sustainability enhancements. Each year, the program can fund any number of projects with budgets totaling $40,000.

Green Fund Committee

The fund is managed by a committee made up of students, faculty, and staff from all of Tufts' four campuses. The committee's charter can be found here, which further lists the expectations of the members and the workings of the committee.
