Growing Our Future: Student Sustainability Fund

UNLOCK A MATCH: When we raise $5,000 for the Student Sustainability Fund, Just Money Advisors, a Louisville-based company, will give $5,000 towards the fund!  Gifts of all sizes will help unlock this matching gift!**

The University of Louisville is committed to integrating sustainability into everything we do - from how we manage our facilities, finances and people to what we teach in the classroom and what we research in the lab. Our vision is to create a university that is itself a living laboratory for sustainability and a campus community that leads by example and educates as much by what we do as by what we say. Our goal is to make decisions which reflect a balanced consideration for environmental, social and economic responsibility and to continually learn as we go.

We invite you to learn more and support our newest initiative, the Student Sustainability Fund.

 

Here's How the Student Sustainability Fund Works:

STEP ONE: Current UofL Finance students in the College of Business put your money to work immediately using real-world socially responsible investment methods. Students invest real dollars and manage the fund with faculty guidance.

STEP TWO: Social Change students in the College of Arts & Sciences will use the proceeds to fund local nonprofit or philanthropic projects either on or off campus. They research local nonprofits and allocate funds in a way that builds capacity or enhances sustainability.

STEP THREE: Students turn donors’ investment into educational enrichment and social change.

By supporting the Student Sustainability Fund you are investing in high-value, hands-on education for 21st century social responsibility. The Student Sustainability Fund is a unique fund, separate from the rest of the endowment, which uses the fund itself as an educational tool.

Your gift changes everything. Join Us!
