WELCOME TO SAINT PAUL AWESOME

The Awesome Foundation has arrived in St. Paul and is giving $1,000 grants to awe-inspiring ideas. St. Paul is a unique community with thriving neighborhoods. We want to fund projects that serve our community through the lenses of the arts, education and social outreach. We love projects that are solving problems and bringing joy to people in St. Paul. Do you have a great idea that needs some financial assistance to become a reality? Apply for a grant from the St. Paul chapter of the Awesome Foundation. What are you waiting for?

Guided by a firm desire to promote diverse ideas and uplift small projects throughout St. Paul, we are a small band of volunteers who want to make our city more awesome than it already is. At least six times a year, we give away no-strings attached $1,000 grants to creators, big thinkers and dreamers. We’re not a charity and we have no interest in making a profit or owning your idea. 100 percent of the money we collect goes to our grantees. We have no overhead expenses. AwesomeStPaul is simply a group of locals ready to open our wallets to make a positive impact on our community. If you’ve got an idea and you need some financial support to take your initiative to the next level, you’ve come to the right place.

WHAT WE FUND. We fund real programs that will make a real impact on the lives of people in St. Paul.

WHAT WE DO NOT FUND. We do not fund the writing of personal books or launching private businesses, travel, conference expenses or projects that don’t impact large numbers of people living in St. Paul.

OUR PROCESS. Applications are due on the 28th of each month. Our trustees meet the second week of each month. Directly after we vote, we announce the monthly winner and arrange for distribution of the $1,000 grant. Your application will remain active until you are notified by e-mail that it is no longer being considered.
