Captain Planet Foundation Offers Grants for Hands-On Environmental Education Activities

The mission of the Captain Planet Foundation is to promote and support high-quality educational programs that enable children and youth to understand and appreciate our world through active hands-on projects that improve the environment in their schools and communities.

Grants are intended to help bring environment-based education to schools and inspire youth and communities to participate in community service through environmental stewardship. The foundation will fund unique projects that do not precisely match the grant guidelines but otherwise promote the foundation’s mission of hands-on environmental activities.

The foundation makes grants to schools and nonprofit environmental and educational organizations in the U.S. with annual operating budgets of less than $3 million, as well as to international organizations that have a U.S.-based partner.

Preferential consideration is given to requests seeking seed funding of $500 or less and to applicants who have secured at least 50 percent matching or in-kind funding for their projects. The foundation will on occasion consider grants of up to $2,500.

For spring and summer 2015 projects, applications must be received no later than September 30, 2014.

Visit the CPF Web site for complete program guidelines and the application form.
