To date (December 2019): $34,500 granted | 35 projects funded | 8 countries | 2,400 submissions

Launched in April 2017, Awesome Disability is an independent chapter of the Awesome Foundation, a global community that provides micro-grants with no strings attached. The trustees of Awesome Disability are people with disabilities that want to support ideas and projects in our community.
How it works
- 10-ish Trustees (on average) each contribute $100 per month.
- People with awesome ideas submit an application for the grant. Please submit your application in English.
- The trustees review and discuss the applications, and pick the best one.
- The winner is given $1000, no strings attached.
- The process is repeated every month, in order to spread the awesomeness.
We accept submissions for the month's grant between the 1st through the 15th of the current month. We will not consider applications submitted outside of this window. Decisions are made by the end of the month.
We select one application for the monthly grant. If your submission is not chosen for the month, you can apply the following month.
Questions? Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
