Take Action: Sustainability Leaders Mini Grant Program

The Sustainability Leaders Mini Grant Program provides $100 - $1,000 to support small projects which promote sustainable practices within departments/offices. Projects may include purchasing reusable service ware for break rooms or purchasing a faucet water filter to help reduce consumption of bottled water.

To be eligible to apply, departments must have a member who has attended the Creating a More Sustainable Workplace session and therefore is part of the Sustainability Leaders Program. The Request for Project Funds Form must be submitted by that member with approval from his or her supervisor.

Office of Sustainability staff review requests for funds on a rolling basis. Funds are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. The maximum amount any single department is able to receive during a fiscal year is $1,500.

Funds will be awarded based on application quality, project feasibility and impact on sustainability at Elon. Funding will only be awarded for one-time expenses and will not be awarded for recuring operational expenses.
