About Us

Our next event: April 15th, 2021

CANCELED: $1,000 + NYC Mayoral Candidates + You!

Unfortunately, our April 15th event has been cancelled, but we will still be granting our April grant. Please sign up for our mailing list or follow us on social media to find out more.

Our application deadline is the last day of the month. We meet on the second Monday of each month to review the previous month's submissions. If your application is time-sensitive, please let us know in your applications.

New York is bubbling with creativity and we are looking to fund really cool projects that touch everything from tech to social to art to media to education. Do you have a great idea? Apply for an AwesomeNYC grant today!

Some tips for writing an awesome grant application:

  • Be brief - we have a ton of applications to review every month
  • Be fun - remember, you want your application to stand out from the pack
  • Be specific - we want to know how you're going to use the $1,000 - show us that you've thought this thing through

If your project was not selected in a given month, please feel free to reapply. We generally only review applications from the current month's pool. In addition, please feel free to get in touch with us if you'd like feedback on your application - we're happy to talk!
