Acerca de Nosotros

In 2021 the #MUSEofRI Development Committee rebooted the Providence of the Awesome Foundation. The Providence chapter giving circle gives monthly, no-strings-attached grants to people anywhere in Providence county dedicated to making it’s residents more awesome through projects making a positive social impact in communities of color! BIPOC, youth and young adults are encouraged to apply.

We will award our next micro-grant in September 2021 for applications submitted by August 31, 2021 at 11:59PM EST. Any application submitted after this date will be reviewed in the next cycle.
