Fossil Free Stanford is kicking off its second ever funding drive, this time positioned to prepare us for our most active quarter yet as the world prepares for the COP21 meeting this November in Paris (link here). We have managed to make the money we raised last time, from a diversity of sources, last us through 2 years of campaigning. That said, we're out of money once again, and hoping to raise $6,000 for the quarter. 

Major achievements made possible by that first funding drive include:

  • Divesting Stanford's $21.4 Billion endowment from the coal extraction industry, which was hailed as "the most significant victory in the youth climate movement to date." (Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything). Please see a list of all coverage of that victory at this link.
  • The launch of a letter signed by 375 Stanford faculty members (317 tenured), published in The Guardian(link to letter here)
  • Passed resolutions through the Undergraduate Senate, Graduate Student Council, and entire student body in favor of full fossil fuel divestment. (link here)

We appreciate donations of any size! We are not, for obvious reasons, fundraising through official Stanford channels so to protect us please share this with folks whom you trust not to forward carelessly, but please do send it to alumni, donors, or other Stanford affiliates who you think would be sympathetic.

Thank you for standing on our side of such an important issue. We appreciate your support deeply.
