We award a $1000 Awesome Grant 4 times a year for the creation of a project that positively impacts our community. We want to inspire & support ideas that will make Washington County, Oregon an even better place to live, work & play! We're looking to fund "small", interesting projects driven by a few passionate contributors that have the possibility of a "BIG" impact.
Join Us! We currently have 9 trustees & would love to have 15-20 on our Awesome Team. We need you! Give back and have loads of fun doing it. Visit our website to learn more about becoming a catalyst for awesomeness: http://awesomebeaverton.weebly.com/about.html Potential trustees & volunteers are invited to attend our Trustee Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 6-8 PM, Market of Choice, 250 NW Lost Springs Terrace, Cedar Mill.
Awesome Hour: Join us for a lively evening of ideas & inspiration at our official "office hour" where we award the $1000 grant & socialize with potential and aspiring applicants. Tuesday, Oct. 18, 7-8 PM at the Market of Choice, 250 NW Lost Springs Terrace, Cedar Mill. Bring a friend, eat/drink, meet the trustees, network with other "doers of good" in your community, brainstorm interesting ideas (Wouldn't it be AWESOME if...) & congratulate the fall $1000 Awesome grant winner - and learn how YOU can help the project be realized! No host food & drinks. No need to RSVP (Just show up!)
