The Awesome Foundation is an ever-growing worldwide community devoted to forwarding the interest of awesome in the universe. Created in the long hot summer days of 2009 in Boston, the Foundation distributes $1,000 grants, no strings attached, to projects and their creators. At each fully autonomous chapter, the money is pooled together from the coffers of ten or so self-organizing “micro-trustees” and given up front in cash, check, or gold doubloons.

We donate $100/month to award $1,000 grants/month in support of crazy brilliant ideas that need funding.

Call for Trustees

Awesome Toronto is looking for 11 Trustees to get the chapter up and running again. The commitment expected of prospective Trustees is for a period of 12 months and includes financial, judgement and time contributions. A small group of former Trustees, as well as the chapter Dean will review all Trustees in consideration.

Apply now to be apart of this, well, pretty awesome initiative.
