We are the new kids on the block!
Our chapter of the Awesome Foundation will begin by awarding quarterly $1,000 no-strings-attached cash to projects and programs that bring maximum awesomeness to Cleveland, Ohio!
Awesome Cleveland isn’t a foundation or a non-profit. Cash comes straight from the pockets of our passionate trustees and directly into the hands of the dreamers and doers making our community awesome. The definition of "Awesome" is left open-ended on purpose but it amounts to that intangible combination of social impact, surprise and FUN. If you’ve got an unconventional idea that needs some support, you’ve come to the right place.
Submit an application, below, before 11:59pm on Sunday, June 2nd, 2019 to be considered for the first grant cycle.
The trustees meet during the second week of the last month of each quarter (March, June, September, December). Directly after, we vote, announce the winner, and hand over the money! Winners are encouraged to announce their project during Creative Mornings Cleveland's monthly meetings (the third Friday of each month) to build up a base of creative-minded supporters.
We take you at your word that you’ll finish the project within a few months time. Keep us in the loop along the way. Even if you don't get a grant, we're happy to connect you with people who share your interests and are equally awesome.
We want everyone to know #ClevelandIsAwesome
