Sobre Nós

We're the Glasgow Chapter of the Awesome Foundation. A fun way of giving £500, no-strings-attached mini-grants to cool projects that will make the world - and Glasgow - more Awesome!

This round we are offering £1000 to help Glasgow based projects supporting refugees and asylum seekers. As always we are keen to hear from charities, groups or individuals who are based in Glasgow and who have an awesome idea. For this refugee specific round we are looking for ideas and projects that are led by or support refugees and asylum seekers coming to or living in Glasgow. If you wish to apply for a project that is not working with or for refugees please apply later in the year – keep an eye on our social media to find out about when these funding rounds will be.

There are four criteria:

  1. The project must be based locally (Glasgow - with a G postcode).
  2. You need to have a budget - prove you have a plan for how additional funds will be raised.
  3. It has to benefit the local community.
  4. Most of all, it has to be Awesome

And for this specific round we want to hear how your project supports refugees or asylum seekers. Projects can be new or existing. Finalists will be invited to a gift night which you need to be able to attend in person or online. Travel expenses can be provided if required.

Good Luck!

NEXT DEADLINE: Wednesday 14th September 2022

GIFT NIGHT: Wednesday 5th October 2022
