Need some funding for your crazy brilliant idea? We award $1,000 grants every month. It couldn’t be simpler.
Submissions are placed in a common pool that’s reviewed by all chapters of The Awesome Foundation. Each chapter meets monthly to select a project to fund. By consensus, trustees determine which project to fund, and the $1,000 fellowship is distributed accordingly. Some chapters also routinely contact applicants for interviews before awarding the fellowships.
Chapters are divided by geography, and more recently by topic of interest. While specifying a chapter to apply to is not necessary (all chapters can view the applications received by all other chapters), many chapters show a preference for local projects.
No strings attached
Your idea is yours alone. We don’t want a stake in it. We just want to help you make it happen.
Don’t forget to choose Seattle if you want to get the local chapter’s attention.
