Awesome Foundation

The Awesome Foundation is clever, loosely organized way of funding fun and interesting projects. Basically about 15 people come together and contribute $100 per month into a fund.

Today, I went to the Boston chapter’s Awesome hours, where I mingled with a few trustees to hear more about what they’re looking for.
