OUR NEXT EVENT:
Tuesday, November 19th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Carrigan's Public House
Deadline to apply for the November Grant is Thursday November 7th at midnight. This will be the final grant of 2019.
Finalists will be contacted by Monday, November 11th.
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.
