Apply For a Grant

About Us

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 basis and host quarterly pitch parties.

What’s a Pitch Party?

A Pitch Party is when our finalists, based on the pool of applications, come to pitch their awesome ideas or projects to an audience and our trustees. Our trustees then do a brief Q&A with the finalists for any additional information that can help with the decision process. Next, our trustees discuss and choose up to 3 winners of our no-strings-attached $1,000 grant.

Check out our party mix!


Now accepting applications for our next pitch party. Deadline is Friday, October 22, 2016.

5 finalists will be selected from applications submitted. The next Pitch Party will take place in early November.

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. Ideas or projects that provoke awe, wonder and inspiration within the community and bring it together. Check out our past winners above for examples.
