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 help children and youth understand and appreciate the natural world through learning experiences that engage them in active hands-on projects.

Grants are intended to serve as a means of bringing environment-based education to schools and of inspiring youth and communities to participate in community service through environmental stewardship activities. The foundation will fund unique and innovative projects that do not precisely match its grant guidelines but otherwise promote its focus on hands-on environmental activities.

The foundation makes grants to U.S.-based schools and nonprofit environmental and educational organizations with annual operating budgets of less than $3 million.

Preferential consideration is given to grant requests that include at least a 50 percent matching or in-kind funding component. (Because external funding is a good indicator of the potential long-term sustainability of the activity, projects with matching funds or in-kind support are given priority.) The foundation will on occasion consider grants of up to $2,500.

See the CPF website for complete program guidelines and the online application form.
