The Awesome Foundation

What is the Awesome Foundation?

The Awesome Foundation is a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1000 at a time. Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, $1,000 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter’s “trustees” and are given on a no-strings attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.

About the OWB Awesome Foundation

This chapter was founded in 2019 in support of the Our West Bayfront Community Plan. Micro-grants from this chapter are awarded four times a year to projects that make the West Bayfront neighborhoods safer, more beautiful, more fun, or healthier. The Our West Bayfront Awesome Foundation Chapter commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, and equitable neighborhood and region. Grants will be awarded on a quarterly basis with the following application deadlines in 2020: March 31, June 30, September 30, December 31.
