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.
Our founding Dean of Awesome, Claudia Loya, has challenged the Baltimore chapter to an awesome showdown for the month of October. This means that the two chapters are competing to see who can receive the MOST AWESOME applications/winner.
We're hoping you think way outside the box, in fact, there is no box. We want your wildest, awe-provoking and pure awesome ideas. Get to it! The deadline is Friday, October 31st at 5 p.m.
