CLASS OF 2013 CAMPUS SUSTAINABILITY FUND
To the Class of 2013, Vermont Law School’s motto “Lex pro urbe et orbe—law for the community and the world” includes a commitment to reducing energy use and promoting renewable resources. To demonstrate our regard for the principles embodied here, the Class of 2013 has chosen, as class gift, to help finance energy efficiency projects, renewable energy investments and other campus sustainability measures.
With an impressive fundraising goal of $35,000, this gift will go a long way to support Vermont Law School’s newly established Green Revolving Loan (GRL) fund. The GRL is a self-managed, sustainable investment vehicle that loans money to specific projects, which then repay the loans through an internal account transfer from savings achieved in the institution’s utilities budget. 75% of the operational savings realized as a result of implemented projects will be returned to the fund annually, allowing for future investment in additional projects as the fund is replenished. Our gift will leave a legacy of sustainability while reducing our energy footprint at VLS.
Please join the Class of 2013 in making sustainable energy investments that future generations of VLS students—and the community that surrounds them—will enjoy. Your support is greatly appreciated.
The class is working to raise $50,000 to establish the Class of 2010 Erin Woolley Scholarship. Once established, the endowment will allow a scholarship to be given each year to a second- or third-year student who has overcome personal adversity, is not receiving merit scholarship, and has demonstrated commitment to women's or children's issues or economic justice.
