A Propos

The South Bend Awesome Fund is dedicated to supporting people, ideas, businesses, and causes that will make the South Bend area even more Awesome! The Chapter meets on a quarterly basis to award three $1000 grants. Finalists are selected one week prior to the quarterly meeting and are required to give a 5 minute presentation at the quarterly meeting. Following all presentations, Chapter Members will vote and award three $1000 grants to the top three vote recipients. Applications are always open and will be considered on a quarterly basis. Even if a meeting date for the next meeting has not been set, applications are open and the next meeting will typically be ~3 mo. from the date of the previous meeting.

The Chapter's next quarterly meeting will be held at 4pm on Nov. 15, 2023 as a part of Founder Factory and in partnership with Start Up South Bend Elkhart will have a special focus on entrepreneurship and offer three $3500 awards!

Any submissions not related to entrepreneurship will be considered for the Winter Quarterly Meeting in January/February 2024.

Submissions for the upcoming Quarterly meeting are due by 5pm on Wed. Nov 8, 2023.

Submissions should highlight how grant funds will be used to make the South Bend region even more Awesome!

Any submission not awarded a grant at a quarterly meeting is welcome to apply for a future meeting.

Even if the date of a future quarterly meeting has not been set, applications are open (please apply).
