We got some great ink today in the newest edition of City Arts Magazine…
Awesome Foundation dean Nathaniel James talks about “low stakes” philanthropy and what $1,000 a month can do for art in Seattle.
Each month, the Awesome Foundation chooses an applicant who has proposed an awesome project, and we fund them. Our first grantee was an oral history project. More recently we helped fund the Onn/Of Light Festival. Since we operate on a monthly basis, we move quickly. Just a couple of weeks after we make a decision, the $1,000 cash is in the pocket of the grantee. Literally cash.
