SJU Green Fund

Project Proposal Information

The Green Fund is available for use by approved sustainably-progressive projects, educational programs and activities for Saint Joseph's University and its surrounding community. The Green Fund will be sustained by both The Green Fund Foundation account, as well as yearly student contributions through the activities fee, and will be administered by the Green Fund Advisory Board.

Applications for funding are to be submitted through the Green Fund Project Proposal Form.

Proposal Guidelines:

All proposals should include the following information:

c)       A detailed timeline explaining anticipated start and end dates of the project and plans for implementation.
