Started in Boston in 2009, The Awesome Foundation is an ever-growing global community devoted to helping local projects and ideas come to fruition.

So far there are two Chapters in the UK – Glasgow and Liverpool. Here’s what the Glasgow Chapter has to say:

“The Awesome Foundation is a fun way of giving a no-strings-attached mini-grant to cool projects that will make the world - and Glasgow - more Awesome! We give £500 away every two months, so you can apply any time. Projects must be local (Glasgow), you need to have a budget, your project has to benefit the local community – and most of all, it has to be Awesome!”
