The Green Initiative Fund is up for renewal on the Spring 2021 ballot!
What is The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF)?
The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) was established at UC Davis in 2016, implementing a $3 quarterly fee for undergraduate students. TGIF was passed with a ‘Sunset Clause’, requiring renewal in the Spring of 2021. This fee funds student-centered projects that support educational opportunities, promote environmental awareness, increase energy and water efficiency, advocate for climate justice, and reduce the amount of waste created on campus. Since 2016, TGIF has funded 98 projects, creating dozens of experiential learning and leadership opportunities for the UC Davis community.
What would a "yes" vote mean?
TGIF will continue providing critical funding for student-centered environmental sustainability projects, internships, and sustainability programming and initiatives through the 2030-31 academic year. The UC Davis community will continue to benefit from the leadership and learning opportunities that TGIF provides to committee members and project participants.
What would a "no" vote mean?
TGIF will be dissolved and will no longer be able to provide funding for future student-centered environmental sustainability projects, internships, and sustainability programming and initiatives. Dozens of opportunities for leadership and experiential learning will no longer be available to the UC Davis community.
TGIF was created for students, by students.
