Contributing to UAF's Sustainability Program
There are a number of ways to contribute to making UAF a more sustainable campus.
You can donate to the UAF Sustainability fund. The fund will be used to support sustainability initiatives such as recycling, alternative energy, student grants, sustainable landscaping and local foods.
Sponsor a Solar Panel - Partner with Students
With your generous donation to the UAF Giving Green Fund you will be partnering with students to support their latest initiative — installing solar panels on the new UAF power plant to reduce our carbon footprint.
In 2010, a student-initiated annual fee of $40 per student was created to support the Student Sustainability Fund. In 2009 a student-initiated annual fee of $40 per student was created to support sustainability at UAF. This money has been used to fund 87 student-selected projects. More than 70 percent of these funds have been spent on projects focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy. In 2014, students funded the installation of LED lighting in the UAF CTC Barnette parking garage, resulting in an average savings of $2,500 per month.
The figures below are general pricing estimates for our current solar panel initiative. After you select the “Give Green” button you will be taken to the UAF giving page where you may choose an amount you would like to donate. Choose “other” under “gift designation” and type “Giving Green Fund.” All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a 501c3 donation receipt from the University of Alaska Foundation. If you have questions about donating, please email Michele Mouton at firstname.lastname@example.org
