Weâ€™re rogues giving to rogues. Itâ€™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 foundationâ€™s 10 New York trustees pool $100 each month and give the $1,000 potâ€Šâ€”â€Šno strings attachedâ€Šâ€”â€Što the New Yorker who best answers their three questions: Who are you? Whatâ€™s your awesome idea? How will you use this money?
If youâ€™re interested in starting a chapter of the Awesome Foundation in your own city, which involves assembling a group of at least ten â€œtrusteesâ€ willing to each contribute $100 (or the local equivalent) every month toward the grant, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
