Grants for Projects That Lead to Real Environmental Solutions
The Captain Planet Foundation awards ecoSolution Grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 to support youth-led projects that result in real environmental outcomes. Activities must be solution-oriented, project-based, and performed by youth. The grants are available to educators working with youth in the United States (international projects are by invitation only). ecoSolution Grants are intended only for direct project costs. Interested applicants will find additional details about this grant on GetEdFunding, a website sponsored by CDW•G with access to a free database of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
