Funding for the Creek

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF)

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) was created in 2007 via a student fee referendum, and renewed in 2016. TGIF is a major supporter of the creek and is responsible for many of the restoration efforts on campus today.

Steve Maranzana Fund for the Environment

In December 2014, EH&S staff member and creek champion Steve Maranzana died in a tragic bike accident. His family created the Steve Maranzana Fund for the Environment, which funds two student interns per year to manage the plant nursery and organize volunteer and outreach events for the creek.
