The San Antonio, TX chapter of The Awesome Foundation was formed in May 2012 and began awarding $1,000 grants every month in October 2012. We accept applications on a rolling bases but celebrate awesomeness every month. “Deadlines” for applications are on the last day of each month at 5 p.m. We host monthly parties at local venues and invite our top three finalists to present their idea or project and then we declare a winner. We encourage all applicants to reapply each month if they do not win on their first try.
You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep SA awesome!
What counts as awesome?
The Awesome Foundation forwards the interest of awesome $1,000 at a time. But what does this mean? We’re looking for ideas or projects that stand out from the crowd. Things that provoke awe and wonder within the community and bring it together. Check out our past winners above for examples. We also think things like Luminaria, Something Monday Social Bike Rides and public art pieces are pretty awesome.
DECEMBER - INTERNAL AWESWOME GRANT
The month of December our AwesomeSA trustees and deans will be competing for the $1,000 grant. We will save all applications received in December from the public and add them to our January vote.
Stay tuned on how YOU can vote on the most awesome internal application.
Happy holidays and #DoSomethingAwesome
