Rose Hill Solar Panels

This campaign ended on August 31, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Fordham University by clicking here!

We are launching this campaign to raise $50,000 to purchase 37 kW of solar panels for the Walsh Library roof – this is a project that will not happen without the support of Rams like you! Please consider joining us in contributing as we make sustainability a priority at the Rose Hill campus.

Rams for Impact and Social Enterprise (RISE) is working to accelerate our alma mater's action on curbing global warming, and we need your help! We want to demonstrate to Fordham’s administration that alumni want renewable energy to be a priority. Fordham made a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2017, however it is not likely that the university will reach this goal without our help. 

To put our goal in a larger context: Georgetown reduced its emissions by 70% from 2006-2014, so we have some work to do! 

As Pope Francis has said in Laudato Si, “each community can take from the bounty of the earth whatever it needs for subsistence, but it also has the duty to protect the earth and to ensure its fruitfulness for coming generations.” 

Our goal is to raise the $50k in less than 6 weeks - the sooner we can expand the Walsh Library Solar Array, the sooner we can reduce our emissions!
