Captain Planet Foundation: ecoSolution GrantsDeadline: July 15, 2018
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 funds and supports hands-on environmental projects 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.
ecoSolution Grants are intended to support solution-oriented, youth-led projects that result in real environmental outcomes.

Eligibility: Applicant organizations must be exempt from federal taxation under the IRS Section 501, or have a fiscal sponsor that meets this criterion; and maintain an annual operating budget of less than $3 million.
Amount: ecoSolution grants range from $500-$2,500.
