The Community Action Fund for Equity & Sustainability Committee (CAFES) seeks to provide financial support to a number of projects and programs advancing sustainability, equity, and social justice at Willamette University and in our community.

When developing proposals, we require students to work closely with staff and/or faculty, especially if your project requires working with them or programs they support. Please reach out to the committee’s project consultant, Sophie Goodwin-Rice, or <community-action-fund> for help with developing your proposal.


Grant Proposal Forms

The CAFES Committee is now accepting grant proposals! We no longer have a rolling deadline and instead, review received proposals after two deadlines each semester. For each of these deadlines, proposal and budget forms must be sent via email to <community-action-fund> by 11:59 pm. Please use the following forms and follow all instructions when submitting your proposal. Incomplete proposals might not be considered.
