Welcome to Awesome Foundation Amsterdam! Each month we award a €1000 no-strings-attached grant to realize awesome initiatives that solve a problem, cultivate our community, and spread joy. Most importantly, we are passionate about seeing your awesome idea come to life.
Every third Thursday of the month we host a get-together where you can pitch your awesome idea. We open up our network, give feedback and choose the most awesome idea who gets the grant. It’s that simple.
.::: What's happening when? :::.
Our next Pitch Night is Thursday, May 26, 2016
To be included in May's applications, you must submit your idea by Wednesday 11 May, 2016
.::: What we are looking for in a grant receiver? :::. - Innovative, exciting and unusual ideas - Ideas that have the potential to go far (check out past grant recipients for inspiration) - Ideas filled with passion and purpose - Projects where the grant is a catalyst to kickstart something awesome
We are not so keen on: - Funding rent or living expenses - Funding marketing for existing projects - Funding travel expenses - Proposals that are not clear on what the impact would be of the grant
Bonus hint: Arguably the most important question is 'How will you use the money?' Make sure you take some time to be really clear and specific about what the grant would be spent on and what it would achieve.
