Sustainable Action Fund: Get Involved

6 Ways You Can Participate:


1. Apply for a Grant

Once you have an idea, gather a team, and start researching the feasibility and logistics of your idea. Go to the Apply page for more information on the application process.


2. Join the SAF Committee

This is the student, staff and faculty committee that allocates funding for Sustainable Action Fund projects. The Committee has two student openings every year. Applications are due in May for serving on the Committee beginning in the fall. You can find the applications on the AS website.


3. Submit your idea

Have great idea but don't have much time to be involved yourself? Submit your idea on our Ideas page. We will share these ideas at Sustainable Action Fund Idea Labs or Info Sessions for folks who want to be involved, but are still looking for that perfect idea.


4. Volunteer

The Sustainable Action Fund often has opportunities for students to help with project research, signage, or events. If you're interested in being on our volunteer list, send an email to the SAF Education Coordinator at 

5. Take CSPS

Do you have a really big project idea that needs some time to be developed? Sign up for the Campus Sustainability Planning Studio (CSPS) course through Huxley. This class revolves around forming a research team to help solve sustainability issues at Western and beyond. If you don't have a SAF grant proposal idea now, you'll be bound to come up with one once in class.

6. SAF Tour

Bring your friends and take this self-guided tour of the SAF projects on campus (it starts at the Rec Center and ends at the PAC). If you are interested in taking a tour with one of the SAF employees please contact
