The Awesome Foundation is a network of giving circles, and every month our chapters award $1,000 grants to make local communities more awesome, donating over $4.6 million across the world in 10 years.

We fund fun, community projects like mini-golf along Milwaukee Avenue on Parking Day to critical social action projects like supplying meals at the end of the Red Line to those in need, and everything in between.
