We love funding projects that make Sydney more awesome.

The Awesome Foundation is a global network of micro-giving chapters that give $1000 of their own money every month to awesome projects. We're the Sydney chapter! We fund out-there ideas that make Sydney more awesome. The ideas sometimes aren't so absurd: they can be super sensible, too. The catch? There isn’t one: there are no strings attached. Since our foundation in 2011, the Sydney chapter has received more than 800 micro-grant applications and given away nearly $80,000. That's a whole lot of awesome.


Tips for your application

There aren’t any rules, but we do prefer to fund ideas that:

  • Make us say ‘that’s awesome!’
  • Have a clear, itemised budget
  • Have a ‘tipping point’ of $1000 and our grant is what’s needed to make it happen
  • Make Sydney more awesome

Generally, we avoid funding advertising and marketing, salaries, websites, travel, and applications where the budget doesn’t clearly explain what the money will be spent on. Here's an example of a recent top-quality application. If yours is as awesome as it is, with a clear plan and budget, then you'll be in with a much better chance.


Application deadline

Apps close at 6.30pm on the third Monday of every month.

Vivid Awesome Sauce: Spreading awesome ideas, 7 June 2019 

In partnership with Vibewire, we have $3,000 to make Sydney more awesome for young people and we need you to tell us where to invest it.

There are five ideas in the running, chosen from hundreds submitted to the Awesome Foundation this year. Each idea will be pitched by its creator. There may be tears, there may be glitter. There will definitely be a tough competition. Not to mention an awesome view across Sydney Harbour and the Opera House.

So who decides the outcome? You, the audience! The power to grant will be transferred from the Trustees to the event attendees. Be moved. Be inspired. Be empowered.

Get tickets: Awesome Sauce, Vivid Ideas Exchange @ MCA Circular Quay, 8-10pm on 7 June 2019.
