In addition to a keen desire to stem the effects of global warming, Carnegie Mellon looks for ways to maximize every dollar donated – making efficiency a constant goal.
Home to the nation's first eco-friendly residence hall, the university is a leader in the field of sustainability. From student-designed green roofs to educational programs focusing on the environment to an on-campus system for waste reduction and energy conservation, Carnegie Mellon's commitment to efficiency and the environment is comprehensive.
The university is also home to the Steinbrenner Institute for Education and Research — a pre-eminent research institute where faculty, students and staff are seeking to change the way the world thinks and acts about the environment.
This means that a gift of $10 doesn't just keep the lights on, it keeps them on longer and with minimal impact on the world we share.
