In 2021 #MUSEofRI Development Committee rebooted the Providence of the Awesome Foundation. The Providence chapter giving circle gives monthly, no-strings-attached grants to people anywhere in Providence county dedicated to making it’s residents more awesome through projects making a positive social impact in communities of color! BIPOC, youth and young adults are encouraged to apply.

July 2021 applications closed. We will award our next micro-grant in August 2021 for applications submitted by July 31, 2021 at 11:59PM EST. Any application submitted after this date will be reviewed in the next cycle.
If you are interested in donating or becoming a trustee and helping us work towards our goal of giving monthly grants, please reach out for more details.  


Help us out one of two ways:

  • Share this link and encourage others to apply for the grant! awesomepvd.org
  • Give $100/$75/$50/month and join as a full-time or guest trustee to help fund awesome projects!


How it works*

  • The full-time trustees listed below each contribute $100 per month.
  • People with awesome ideas submit an application for the grant.
  • The trustees review and discuss the applications at the end of each month, and pick the best one.
  • The winner is given up to $1000 (must be able to accept money through PayPal).
    * Please note you will need a PayPal account to receive funds and we will also need provide a completed W-9 form.

What we like to see

  • Make us say, “That’s awesome!”
  • Makes a positive impact on communities of color in Rhode Island. Answer how on application.
  • Clearly explain where the money will be spent (Hint: "marketing" or "website" is not specific enough).
  • Add photos (if applicable).
  • Say “PayPal” somewhere in your application so we know you read this and can accept money through these channels.
