The Climate Action Fund was established in response to Chancellor DiStefano’s Call to Climate Action. It provides the opportunity for donors to support the work of CU Boulder faculty and students working on climate action. Donors can support existing programs or can donate to the general fund and have the Executive Committee prioritize the use of funds.
The Chancellor's Call to Climate Action
The imperative to address climate change has never been greater. CU Boulder is well positioned to address this challenge as a decades-long leader in campus sustainability. Our work together will make our university a beacon of hope and innovation for communities around the world.
Managed by the CU Executive Committee
Our Executive Committee for the Climate Action Fund at CU Boulder is comprised of members representing University of Colorado administration, faculty, students, and community leaders.
