FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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, $1000 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.
WHAT IS THE AWESOME SUMMIT?
The Awesome Summit affords an opportunity for Awesome Foundation chapters to get together to exchange ideas and experiences, and to strengthen and grow the movement. Since the first Awesome Foundation chapter was started in 2009, we have held six summits -- Boston (2012), New York City (2013), Ottawa (2014), Seattle (2016), Washington DC (2017), Chicago (2019), and a regional summit in Sydney (2022).
