We DO NOT fund private businesses, social services or contributions to ongoing programs where we would just be one of the funders or contributors. Give us something NEW and INNOVATIVE that will MAKE AN IMPACT on UNSUSPECTING people.

If you would like to discuss your idea to see if it meets the Awesome standard, feel free to call Dean Terry Olson, 407-279-1846.
