Austin, TX

About Us

We are the Austin, Texas chapter of the Awesome Foundation!

If you have an idea that could help keep Austin awesome, we hope you'll apply for one of our monthly $1000 micro-grants. What does "awesome" mean, you ask? That's something we purposely leave up to your imagination. From a pop-up recreation of the Indiana Jones boulder scene to meat-filled zebra pinatas, if you can dream it, the Awesome Foundation would like to help you do it!

Note: If your project is time-sensitive, we strongly recommend you apply at least 60 to 90 days in advance of when funds are needed.

To stay in the loop about upcoming events, deadlines and news from our chapter, sign up for our newsletter and follow us Facebook and Instagram.

If you're interested in joining us as a trustee, we invite you to complete our rolling application. And if you need to get in touch with us directly, you can do so at
