Greg Jack and Emily Daniels | Awesome Foundation Ottawa


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.

Created in the long hot summer days of 2009 in Boston, the Foundation distributes a series of monthly $1,000 grants to projects and their creators. The money is pooled together from the coffers of each individual, or “micro-trustee,” and given up front in cash, check, or gold doubloons. The chapters are autonomous, made of 10 or so microtrustees, and assemble around geographic areas or topics of interest.
