We’re rogues giving to rogues. It’s misfit money for the weird and wonderful.
The Awesome Foundation NYC, of which I am a trustee, was recently featured in the New York Times.
The foundation’s 10 New York trustees pool $100 each month and give the $1,000 pot — no strings attached — to the New Yorker who best answers their three questions: Who are you? What’s your awesome idea? How will you use this money?
If you’re interested in starting a chapter of the Awesome Foundation in your own city, which involves assembling a group of at least ten “trustees” willing to each contribute $100 (or the local equivalent) every month toward the grant, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
