Give now and have twice the impact! An HSU Advancement Foundation board member has pledged to match any gift of $500 or more, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000 total!
The Go Green Fund has been set up by the Humboldt State Advancement Foundation to support programs and campus improvements that enhance the energy efficiency and environmental responsibility of the campus.
From LED lighting in classrooms to timing controls for heating systems in buildings, students partner with Facilities Management to research energy improvements on campus. They identify improvements with measured savings that can be achieved through improved technology.
The students working on these sustainability projects have the potential to see their ideas and research put into action right here on their campus. The problem is that the funding received from the State of California keeps the campus open but doesn’t allow a lot of room for improvements or innovation.
A gift to the Go Green Fund supports young people who have a vision for a greener future and who have the knowledge, but not the tools, to make it a reality.
Each of the projects funded by the Go Green Fund will lower the energy footprint of the campus, save resources, and make campus improvements. As an added bonus, the money saved through these efficiency projects will be reinvested to provide even more opportunities for students to partner with staff on projects that will improve the campus and the earth.
The Go Green Fund will provide an experiential learning environment that benefits young people, the Humboldt State campus, and the world. Thank you for participating!
