About Us

Hi,

We're the Geelong Chapter of the Awesome Foundation!

In Geelong we take great pride in our community spirit and love encouraging awesome projects.

A small collection of trustees have come together to create the Geelong chapter of the Awesome foundation.

Together the trustees provide one monthly grant up to $1,000. This grant can be given to one awesome project (individual or group) or divided into more depending on the successful applicant/s.

Applications open on the 1st of each month, close on the 23rd at 5pm of each month. The successful grant applicants will be contacted by the last day of the month. Applicants must reside in the City of Greater Geelong boundary.

The funds are a 'no strings attached' grant and will be awarded to one or more lucky applicant based on a vote between the trustees.

The Trustees are reviewing the February 2020 applicants now and will inform the successful applicant before the end of February. Successful applicants will be listed below for the next month,
