The Captain Planet Foundation primarily makes grants to U.S.-based schools and organizations with an annual operating budget of less than $3 million. International requests are also accepted, with preference given to international projects that have U.S.-based partners.

Captain Planet Foundation funds MAY NOT be used for:
-Capital or building campaigns, purchase of real estate, or endowments
-General operating expenses or staffing salaries Beautification or landscaping projects
-Travel costs or Field trips that are not an essential part of the proposed project (if included, identify the purpose of the field trip above, under “project activities.”)

Pre-Application Information:

Preferential consideration is given to requests who have secured at least 50% matching or in-kind funding for their projects. (Projects with matching funds or in-kind support are given priority because external funding is a good indicator of the potential for long-term sustainability of the activities).

Captain Planet Foundation may choose to fund a portion of the project budget that best fits within the foundation guidelines or contact an applicant for further discussion.
