Green Fund

Established and directed by students, the Holy Cross Green Fund offers grant funding to projects that positively impact the environment and Holy Cross students.

About the HC Green Fund

The Holy Cross Green Fund aims to establish a more sustainable campus through extensive, visible, and strategic collaboration between students, faculty, administration, and staff. When enacting sustainability policies and programs at Holy Cross, the Green Fund considers the beneficial impact of sustainability in the lives of the members of the Holy Cross community as well as those in the greater Worcester area and the world.

Seeking to increase the value​ ​of educational opportunities and environmental initiatives at the College with hands-on project planning, research opportunities, and volunteer opportunities, the Holy Cross Green Fund will aid in fulfilling the College’s Carbon Commitment and help answer Pope Francis’s call to action as outlined in his 2015 encyclical, ​Laudato Si. ​In essence, the Holy Cross Green Fund, founded on Jesuit values, fosters collaboration and unity within the Holy Cross and Worcester community in pursuit of a more sustainable world.
