The We Mean Green Fund (WMGF) provides funding for students, staff, and faculty members of the UNT community to make our campus even greener! The fund is made possible by the student body via the Environmental Service Fee which students self-imposed during a student government election in 2010. Each student contributes $5 to the Environmental Service Fee during the spring and fall semesters to support community-driven campus environmental sustainability projects

UNT students and employees are invited to propose their ideas for new campus environmental improvement projects to the WMGF Committee to be considered for funding and a chance to lead a project that positively contributes to a meaningful cause. The WMGF relies on shared engagement, enthusiasm, and leadership from students and employees to integrate sustainability into the culture of our university’s many activities and operations.

The WMGF Committee, a student-led, student-majority campus committee, recommends the allocation of funds from the student Environmental Service Fee to support environmental sustainability projects at UNT.
