Awesome Grant

Available to individuals

The Awesome Foundation represents an ever-growing, worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe. Created in the long hot summer days of 2009 in Boston, the Foundation distributes a series of monthly $1,000 grants to projects and their creators. The money is pooled together from the coffers of ten or so self-organizing “micro-trustees” and given upfront in cash, check, or gold doubloons. The chapters are autonomous and organised by the trustees around geographic areas or topics of interest.

The Foundation provides these grants with no strings attached and claims no ownership over the projects it supports. It is, in the words of one of our trustees, a micro-genius grant for flashes of micro-brilliance. Since its humble beginnings, many Awesome Foundation chapters have sprung up globally to conserve, sustain, and support the worldwide ecosystem of awesomeness. In Australia you can apply for a $1,000 grant through the Melbourne or Sydney.

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. To apply for a grant, keep an eye out for a chapter near you, or fill out an application at:

Eco-shout launchpad promotes grants, awards, competitions, fellowships and other opportunities for environmental and social justice groups and campaigns to launch, develop and grow. Add an opportunity to the launchpad and we'll share it through social media at peak times and do our best to shout about it. Share the launchpad with your grumpy mates who think there's nothing good around.
