Institutions with small endowments of $100 million or less have overcome resource-related barriers to creating green revolving funds (GRFs). By establishing a GRF, these schools have added value to their campus and gained a competitive advantage in the sustainability realm. An examination of 16 schools with small endowments revealed five recommendations for schools establishing a GRF: (1) shape your GRF to appeal to institutional strengths; (2) take advantage of available resources in creating and implementing your GRF; (3) specify project restrictions and guidelines for initiatives funded through the GRF; (4) create a GRF that supports your institution’s financial structure; and (5) align your GRF with institutional goals and engage stakeholders. Two schools in particular, Thompson Rivers University (British Columbia, Canada) and Grand Valley State University (Michigan) provide examples as two case studies on how they were able to work around limited resources to implement a successful GRF.
