The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) accepts applications requesting funding for a sustainability project. Chapman's Faculty Sustainability Committee reviews all applications and selects fund recipients based on how well their proposal reflects the goals of TGIF. Applications must meet certain criteria and guidelines, which can be found below. The applications for funding are due on a monthly basis, so new projects and ideas are always welcomed.
The projects to be funded are selected by the Sustainability Committee, composed of staff, faculty and students as well as a Student Government Association representative. This committee reviews each application and selects recipients based on how well their proposal reflects the goals of TGIF.
In addition, the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program here at Chapman helps fund TGIF. CSA is a program that connects subscribers to a local farm that delivers organic, seasonal produce to the Chapman campus. For each box purchased, 10% of the profit is donated to TGIF. Learn more about CSA on our Get Involved page. The following video provides a short introduction to the Green Initiative Fund.
