Event Details

The Toronto Awesome Foundation is part of an ever-growing, worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe. Each month Toronto Awesome gives a brown paper bag containing $1,000 to a project, no strings attached. In a year and a half, Awesome has funded such things as a night of making cardboard forts, an online romantic map of kisses, creating shelters for homeless people from IKEA furniture and the best fish tacos around. The Awesome trustees come from science, art, design, technology and social justice. Awesome Toronto wants everyone to engage in philanthropy, to participate and hear what Toronto thinks is awesome, to think how they would spend their money, and to help the most awesome project move forward. 

Join us at the Gladstone August 30th 7pm for an Awesome Pitch Night, with finalists pitching their "awesome" project to the audience and Awesome Foundation trustees.  Up to five short-list finalists will pitch, and the evening will end with a $1,000 award ceremony.  Total event duration approximatly one hour, don't be late!

Organizer

Toronto Awesome Foundation

The Awesome Foundation for the Arts and Sciences is an ever-growing, worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe.

The Foundation distributes a series of monthly $1,000 grants to projects and their creators. The money is given upfront in a paper bag full of cash by a group of ten self-organizing “micro-trustees,” who form autonomous chapters around geographic areas or topics of interest.

The Foundation provides these grants with no strings attached and claims no ownership over the projects it supports. (Detailed FAQ.) It is, in the words of one of our trustees, a micro-genius grant for flashes of micro-brilliance.
