Patriot Green Fund

You can help green Mason with the Patriot Green Fund!  

Do you have an idea for how to make your workspace, projects, or operations more sustainable? The Patriot Green Fund (PGF) can help!  

The PGF is a $100,000 annual fund from Mason Facilities that finances infrastructure improvements and student research efforts that reduce Mason’s environmental impact.  

Any current student, faculty, or staff member may apply for funds to support a sustainability project, and quick fund applications can be submitted any time.  

 Staff have used the PGF to bring water bottle refill stations and recycling bins to campus buildings, upgrade necessary equipment for more energy efficient alternatives, reduce the amount of waste their operations produce, and more!
