Opportunity Knocks - Is This Awesome? - Grant Money for Innovative Ideas

I just came across The Awesome Foundation from Mira's List. Although they are based out of Boston, New York, and Providence, their web site states they consider proposals from all over. If you're project is chosen, it could be $1,000 for you. Every month a new awesome grant. 500 words is all it takes to be considered. What do you think?


  1. Certainly sounds pretty awesome. The challenge is to string together the right 500 words. Something I am not good at.

    Have you heard about the Puffin Foundation? Check them out if you haven't.

  2. Hi Lana,

    Yes, I remember when Kelli got a grant from the Puffin Foundation. What I like about this grant is that you have a new chance every month. The deadline is the 15th of each month. Why not give it a try? You have won two residency awards, and had books chosen, so don't sell yourself short!
