About the Green Fund at UWO

The Green Fund is a student-run committee funded through students’ segregated fees to implement sustainable projects for campus initiatives. This year there is approximately $60,000 available to students for projects that promote sustainability on campus. Projects can be anything related to sustainability from social justice & climate change to landscaping & food movements, or even business related projects. Proposals can be written by an individual or student group and will be reviewed for approval and funding at the end of each semester. If you or your group would like more information, or have an idea for a project come see us in the Oviatt House (Room 201), our contact information is also listed below. . All it takes to submit a proposal is to fill out an application online and email it to Each semester, after we have received all of the proposals, everyone that submitted a proposal will have a chance to present it to the Green Fund committee. Once all of the proposals have been presented or reviewed, the committee will votes on which projects to fund and how much to allocate each project.

We’re here to help at every step of the process from working out your ideas to organizing the project and filling out the application. You can make a positive impact on our campus! For questions, more information, or to talk about an idea please email
