The mission of the Captain Planet Foundation is to support hands-on environmental projects for youth in grades K-12 throughout the world. The FoundationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s objective is to encourage innovative activities that empower children to work individually and collectively as environmental stewards.
Support is provided to nonprofit organizations and schools for environmental education programs that promote interaction and cooperation and that help young people develop planning and problem-solving skills. Grants generally range from $500 to $2,500. Requests are reviewed four times per year, and the remaining application deadlines for 2006 are September 30 and December 31.
