Foundation / Corporation
Grants of up to $5,000 to Maine and New Hampshire public and private PreK-12 schools and colleges for recycling and sustainable waste management programs. Funding is intended for projects that will reduce solid waste and increase recycling and composting.

Recipients are chosen based on the following criteria:
- Project outline and school commitment
- Ease of project replication
- Likelihood of success and program sustainability
- How compelling and worthy the funding is
