Captain Planet Foundation, Projects for Children and Youth
Projects for Children and Youth
The mission of the Captain Planet Foundation is to fund and support hands-on environmental projects for children and youth. The foundation works to encourage innovative programs that empower children and youth around the world to work individually and collectively to solve environmental problems in their neighborhoods and communities.
The foundation annually funds as many projects as its resources allow. Grants generally range from $250 to $2,500. All applicant organizations or sponsoring agencies must be exempt from federal taxation under section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code (this includes most schools and nonprofit organizations). All applicant projects must also promote understanding of environmental issues; focus on hands-on involvement; involve children and young adults age 6 to 18 (elementary through high school); promote interaction and cooperation within the group; help young people develop planning and problem solving skills; include adult supervision; and commit to follow-up communication with the foundation.
Deadlines for submitting grant applications are June 30, September 30, and December 31. The foundation will only accept proposals that have been submitted using the online application form. See the Captain Planet Foundation Web site for complete guidelines and application instructions.
