About Us

Awesome Ottawa awards a $1,000 grant every month, no strings attached, to forward the interest of awesome in the universe — usually, though not always, in Ottawa. Since 2010, we've given away $112,000!

Need $1,000 to pull off your awesome project? Applying couldn't be easier!

Looking to stay connected? You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter, or reach out by e-mail.

Maybe you'd like to become a trustee? Trustees get together one evening per month, each contributing $100 toward the $1,000 award and deciding by consensus who will receive it. Let us know!
