Due 2/28/2013: Grant Applications for environmental inspiration and/or education for youth
The Captain Planet Foundation supports educational programs that enable youth to understand and appreciate our world through hands-on projects to improve the environment. The Foundation is interested in funding innovative programs that inspire youth to participate in community service through environmental stewardship activities. An additional priority is to fund programs that encourage environment-based education in schools. Nonprofit organizations and public schools may apply for grants of up to $2,500; however, preference is given to requests seeking seed funding of $500 or less. Projects with matching funds or in-kind support are also given priority. The first application deadline for 2013 is February 28. Application guidelines are available on the Foundation’s website.
