The Community Action Fund for Equity and Sustainability Committee is a student-led program that provides funding for projects and programs that advance sustainability, equity and social justice in and around Willamette’s campus and community.
The program was established in 2014 after undergraduate students voted in a referendum to create an optional fee of $25 per semester. Since then, it’s seen at least 80 percent participation by students. CAFES supports projects regarded to social justice, equity, and the environment, with the main mission of empowering students to make positive contributions to the Willamette community and greater Salem area.
CAFES is funded by students with an optional $25 per-semester fee. Please opt-out of the fall fee by September 12, 2022. If you do not opt-out, you will be automatically charged the full fee for the semester. The process to opt-out is short and can be done through SAGE, Willamette’s student self-service portal.
