About the Foundation
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. Our unique program of funding and supporting hands-on environmental projects is designed to encourage innovative initiatives 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.
About Our Grants
- CPF has funded over 1,600 projects.
- CPF funded projects have directly impacted over 972,000 youth and positively impacted over 3,000 schools or communities.
- Our grantees have recycled over 100 tons of waste that was bound for overcrowded landfills.
- CPF has established over 750 outdoor classrooms, organic gardens, pollinator gardens, learning trails, native habitats, and/or fruit orchards.
Over the past 22 years, CPF has leveraged millions of dollars to help our grantees monitor, restore, and maintain hundreds of miles of rivers and streams; restore acres of wetlands, forests and prairies; and take action to clean local parks and neighborhoods making them a healthier place to play and thrive.
Additionally our grants have helped thousands of schools and community organizations launch organic pollinator gardens to address the growing concern over the disappearance of vital pollinators, vegetable gardens to provide healthy food options in the cafeteria, and native plant gardens to help students understand the importance of native flora and fauna.
Throughout the Foundation’s history, we have worked with organizations who serve children in all 50 U.S. states and over 23 countries.
