About Us

The Eastern Shore chapter of the Awesome Foundation is here and ready to fund some awesomeness! We are proudly and excitedly connected to the wider Awesome Foundation network.

What's your awesome idea? Do you have an awesome idea that would make your Shore-based community awesome? Of course you do. Apply today for a $450-$1,000 no-strings-attached grant to make your awesome idea a reality. Our short grant application is available here. We generally review applications at the end of every month, and respond to applicants within 5-7 business days after. If you are unsure if your idea matches the types of project we would fund, please still apply and we will provide feedback.

Join us! If you'd like to play a direct role in deciding what we fund next, become a trustee! Our group is comprised of community members who commit to the following:

Financial Contribution: Commit to fundraising $100 per month in the interest of Awesome on the Eastern Shore for at least 6 months. This contribution goes towards the $1,000 award we grant each month. Participation: Play an active role in accepting and reviewing applications, and in deciding with the other trustees by consensus who will receive the grant. New Projects: With no specific leadership roles, every trustee is a leader in their own right. We like trustees to come up with new project ideas for the chapter to do, and help organize the group into getting it done. Trustees serve until they resign. If you're interested in joining us as a trustee, we invite you to complete our rolling application, and we'll try to get back to you shortly.
