About Us

Every two months, the Vegan Chapter of the Awesome Foundation grants $1000 to an awesome vegan project, no strings attached.

For the rest of 2021 we will not consider projects that promote gatherings of people. We will reevaluate this policy when the Covid19 crisis is over.

We disburse grants using Venmo, PayPal, and cryptocurrency. You must be able to receive money using these methods to receive our grant.

Grant applications may be submitted 24/7/365 by clicking one of the "Apply for a grant" buttons on this page, and following the instructions. Applications must be received before the first Tuesday of the month. We will vote on proposals the following Sunday.

Winning proposals will:

  1. Reduce or promote the reduction of any form of exploitation of, or cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. (https://www.vegansociety.com/go-vegan/definition-veganism)
  2. Describe an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim.
  3. Be easily understood by our English-speaking trustees. (We love other languages but we can't learn them all.)

Winners will be posted on this page and notified by e-mail.
