OUR NEXT EVENT:
August 26th from 6:00pm-8:00pm at Carrigan's Public House
Deadline to apply for the August 2019 Grant is August 12th at midnight.
Finalists will be contacted by August 14th.
Each finalist will have 5 minutes to present their idea, followed by a few minutes of questions by a panel of judges. After all the finalists have presented, the judges will vote on the winner. The winning project will be awarded $1,000 to fund their idea.
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.
