Captain Planet Foundation Environmental Grants

Deadlines: January 15 or July 15

Want to help youth learn about the environment? Start a library garden project, recycling program, or
other hands-on environmental education programming. The Captain Planet Foundation™ invests in high-quality, solution-based programs that embrace STEM learning and empower youth to become local global environmental change-makers. Educators, both K-12 classroom and informal, who are interested in receiving support for students to design and implement hands-on environmental solutions are eligible for project funding.

The Captain Planet Foundation has three grant programs.

  • ecoSolution™ Grants support youth-led solution-oriented projects in the range of $500-$2,500 and are intended to support solution-oriented, youth-led projects that result in real environmental outcomes. ecoSolution™ Grants are available to educators working with youth in the United States (international projects are by invitation only).
  • ecoTech™ Grants support projects that utilize technology as part of an environmental solution.  Available as cash grants of $2,500, these grants support purchase of materials and other expenses required to implement a project.
  • ecoSTEM™ Kits are ready-to-go environmental Project Based Learning activities in a box. 

The application process (online form) and more details are on the website.
