A $25 dollar donation is required to start the fund initially, but there is no minimum amount that must be accumulated. However, ideally the fund will accumulate $10,000, at which point the Triskeles Foundation is able to invest the money in a socially responsible investment strategy.
The money accumulated in the REF (at $10,000) is invested in socially responsible and environmentally sustainable strategies through the Triskeles Foundation. Investment recommendations will be made by a committee including REC board members and students. As with any investments, the value of the investment and the earnings may vary based on what they are invested in.
