The Awesome Foundation love funding projects that make Sydney more awesome.

Apply for a once-off up to $3000 mega grant! On 7 June 2019, the Awesome Foundation will give away a mega grant of up to $3,000 as part of VIVID IDEAS. Your application to make Sydney more awesome could be one of five to pitch on the night, and the audience will vote on which project is the most awesome.

The Awesome Foundation is a global network of micro-giving chapters that give $$$ of their own money every month to awesome projects.

The Sydney chapter fund out-there ideas that make Sydney more awesome. The ideas sometimes aren’t so absurd: they can be super sensible, too. The catch? There isn’t one: there are no strings attached.

Since founding in 2011, the Sydney chapter has received more than 800 micro-grant applications and given away nearly $80,000. That’s a whole lot of awesome.

There aren’t any rules, but they do prefer to fund ideas that:

  • Make us say ‘that’s awesome!’
  • Have a clear, itemised budget
  • Have a ‘tipping point’ of $1000 and our grant is what’s needed to make it happen
  • Make Sydney more awesome

Generally, they avoid funding salaries, websites, travel and ideas where the budget doesn’t make it clear enough how the money will be used.
