Expression of Interest: Join Awesome Foundation Sydney as a Trustee
The Awesome Foundation is a global network of micro-giving chapters that give $1000 of their own money every month to awesome projects. We're the Sydney chapter!
And here's what the New York Times had to say about the NYC chapter:
We fund out-there ideas that make Sydney more awesome. The ideas sometimes aren't so absurd: they can be super sensible, too. The catch? There isn’t one: there are no strings attached.
We’ve helped some great ideas get off the ground over the years:
*Heart and Soul Story, bringing teens and elderly people together in aged care facilities
*The Monstrosities, part of Art and About Sydney
*The Backyard Bus artist-in-residence program
*Aussie Native Bees
*Rainbow Families Penrith
We've funded all these, too:
JOIN US AS A TRUSTEE
Trustees join at least nine meetings per year, and pay $100 of their own money into the grant each month. We meet after work on the third Monday of every month in Sydney's CBD (usually in one of our offices). Our Trustees are all Sydney-based, socially-minded, and keen to spread the word about Awesome Foundation and awesome ideas through their extensive networks and communities.
JOIN US AS AN AMBASSADOR
Ambassadors fill in at meetings on occasions a Trustee can't make it. They are able to vote, but don't contribute to the grants.
KEEN TO JOIN?
