Grants of $1,000 to Santa Fe Area, New Mexico individuals, groups, and organizations for small projects that will positively impact the local community in a creative way. Consideration will be given to projects from a broad range of areas, including but not limited to technology, science, social good, and the arts.

Awesome Foundation prefers projects that are visible and have a clear community benefit. Your project should make an impact by helping others or creating a better environment for them.

Awesome Foundation is looking for projects that:
-Are actionable and achievable
-Benefit Santa Fe and the immediate surrounding communities
-Can be completed within a reasonable time frame
-Can be fully funded with the $1,000 grant

Applicants should keep these guidelines in mind in developing a creative idea of how to make Santa Fe a better place to live, work, and play.

The chapter will ONLY consider those projects that can be fully funded with the $1,000 grant. If you are working with a larger budget, think of a specific, creative stand-alone element that the $1,000 can fully fund. Applicants are advised to keep this in mind when providing a detailed budget and project timeline.


Anyone is eligible for a grant, individuals, groups, and organizations alike.
