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.
Last spring, TGIF awarded over $70,000 to various projects that sponspored new environmental publications and the work of campus groups such as the Land Use Working Group and Berkeley Student Food Collective.
