January 24th at the Bistro East restaurant in Annapolis Royal. Join us from 5:30 on for dinner and social and 7 pm for Pitch Night. Please call Bistro at 532-7992 to reserve your seats. Deadline for January pitches is extended until the 17th at midnight.
Awesome Annapolis is making the area more awesome $1000 at a time, no-strings-attached. We are high on action and low on bureaucracy.
We particularly like smaller, start-up projects that can demonstrate how $1000 will tip the scales to make the project happen -where the project can be achieved with the $1000 grant versus the $1000 going toward a larger funding need.
CRITICAL is the need to see awesome in our own community in Annapolis County - a good guide for reach would be using the school catchment area. Pitches for projects outside our community will not be considered so it's important that you let us know how your idea will make our community just a little bit better than it already is.
The generous trustees have made the following projects possible with their $400 donation:
To become a trustee, commit to donate $400 total to participate for one year and help select the most brilliant, positive-impact project proposal to receive our combined $1000.
No audio-visual, no props, just a simple 6 minute presentation telling us about your idea and why it is awesome. Everyone is welcome – friends, family and interested community members. $1000 cash awarded on the spot! Join us for a feel-good fun evening of ideas, inspiration and entertainment.
APPLY FOR A GRANT!
The application takes 15 minutes or less to complete online. Finalists deliver a 6-minute max pitch at Pitch Night, where we select a winner and hand out $1000 on the spot to help them turn their awesome idea into reality. We do not claim ownership or future rights to your project, nor do we wish the funds to be repaid. We love projects that positively impact lots of people rather than only a small group, and especially people in Annapolis area.
Application Deadline: 25th of each month.
