The goal of The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) is to enable and empower students to take an active role in making UCLA a leader in sustainability. TGIF will provide much needed funding for projects that reduce UCLA's negative impact on the environment.
The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) is a grant-making fund for sustainability projects on UCLA's campus. Roughly, $200,000 per year is available for student-initiated sustainability projects on campus. Projects will be selected for funding by an annually appointed Grant Making Committee consisting of students, faculty, and staff in which students have the majority vote. TGIF is funded by a $4 per quarter student fee beginning in Fall 2008 and persisting for 10 years. The fee referendum was overwhelmingly approved by the student body during the May 2008 USAC elections with 75% voting in favor.
UCLA is now a member of the Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) thanks to a TGIF grant awarded to the E3 E-Waste Club - Zero Waste Campaign. Learn more about PLAN below.
