Captain Planet Foundation: Providing Grants, Environmental Stewardship Opportunities and Education to Inspire Youth!

Deadline: 31 January 2016

Captain Planet Foundation is accepting applications from US and international organisations for grants to serve community through environmental stewardship activities.

The Atlanta-based Captain Planet Foundation was co-founded by Ted Turner and Barbara Pyle in 1991. The Foundation supports high-quality; hands-on environmental stewardship projects that have enabled more than 1.1M youth across the U.S. and around the world make significant environmental improvements to their schools or communities.

The mission of the Captain Planet Foundation is to give the next generation of environmental stewards an active understanding and love for the natural world in which they live. The foundation’s unique program of funding and supporting hands-on environmental projects is designed to encourage innovative initiatives that inspire and empower children and youth around the world as they work individually and collectively creating environmental solutions in their homes, schools and communities.
