No-Strings-Attached Grants
Awesome Foundation Gives Out Monthly Micro-Monetary Support

By: Tiana Reid (Rockstar) Jun 29, 13

SocialBusiness.org has been aware of the Awesome Foundation vaguely for a while now, although the network itself hasn’t been featured on our site because it strays from social business as a category even if it certainly is an example of social innovation. Based in Cambridge, MA, the organization has numerous chapters including one in Canada. Relatedly, Toronto’s Centre for Social Innovation has an Awesome CSI where recently, Aidan Dahlin Nolan, won the $1000 grant.

“Aidan’s ambitious plan includes establishing a network of ‘Community Canoe Gardens’ that will use ‘retired’ canoes as planters to create a pollinator corridor along the Garrison Creek, and establishing a canoe sharing system along Toronto Harbour to bring more people into contact with the water,” Heather Laird wrote on the CSI blog.
