Awesome Gives Monthly Grants

Getting a $1,000 grant is awesome, right? Awesome Foundation of Oahu certainly thinks so, and it’s calling for grant applicants to help spread all that awesomeness around.

The foundation is a group of 11 Oahu residents — with its main office in Kailua — who chip in $100 each to support the awarding of a monthly $1,000 grant to a worthy project.

The group is willing to fund just about any kind of project, so long as it benefits an Oahu-based community in a meaningful and visible way. Past awardees include Ko’olau Mountains Watershed Partnership (to buy eight pairs of Kahtoola MICROspikes shoes for forest volunteers) and Kailua Intermediate School Band (to repair broken instruments).
