The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) is UC Berkeley’s Campus Green Fund. TGIF provides funding, via grants, for projects that improve and support UC Berkeley’s campus sustainability efforts. TGIF allocates funds to projects that promote sustainable modes of transportation, increase energy and water efficiency, restore habitat, promote environmental and food justice, and reduce the amount of waste created by UC Berkeley.
Portions of the fund also support education and behavior change initiatives, student financial aid, and student internships. Students, faculty, and staff may submit project proposals, which are selected for funding by the annually appointed TGIF Committee, consisting of students, faculty, and staff, on which students have the majority vote.
The spring grant program gives preference to larger and more complex projects. Spring grant requests must be greater than $2,000. The two-stage application process occurs during the spring semester.
