The Birmingham Chapter of the Awesome Foundation's grants support projects in sciences, arts, education, civic engagement, media, and entertainment -- just about anything as long as it contributes to making The Magic City more AWESOME!
What Types of Project Are NOT Supported? The types of projects are generally not supported — typically ones that are personal and limited in their community impact, and existing efforts that would not see significant incremental benefit from a small grant. For example, we aren't going to pay your bills or help you start a business.
And guess what 501c3 status is not a requirement! The grants can go to groups, individuals, small non-profit organizations, almost any entity. We generally don't give to large organizations.
