HBCU GREEN FUND LEADS THE WAY TO ENERGY EFFICIENCY ON CAMPUS
The HBCU Green Fund is a non-profit (501 C3) that works to advance campus-wide sustainability at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). We are working to finance energy efficient buildings and infrastructure upgrades. We also support interdisciplinary sustainability curriculum and promote student engagement in sustainability initiatives.
We are a collective “green revolving loan fund” that invests in projects that generate energy and other utility savings sufficient to repay the loans. With older buildings and millions in deferred maintenance at most HBCUs there is significant opportunity to leverage impact investment to achieve significant resource and financial savings. As the demand for social impact grows it opens the door to innovative investment strategies.
We have cultivated a strong diverse network and partners possessing expertise required to successfully identify, assess, implement and manage efficiency projects.
The HBCU Green Fund is launching a nationwide fundraising campaign. The goal is to raise $1 million to finance upgrades on HBCUs all across the country.
The HBCU Green Fund will look for projects that will reduce energy, cut down on water usage, and minimize the carbon footprint of historically black colleges and universities.
Students will work with their peers and campus leadership to reinforce the need to take an active part in green initiatives to ensure that their institution provides quality education for generations.
