Awesome Newcastle provides $1,000 grants every month to help community projects in Newcastle, Australia. No strings attached.

They believe awesome ideas can make a big impact.

I am so proud to be a Novocastrian and to call Newcastle my home

They are not a charity, they are a foundation created to help the artists, creators, ideas people and leaders of Newcastle.

Awesome Newcastle is a chapter of The Awesome Foundation. The Awesome Foundation was created in 2009 and has provided over $1.5m in grants via 114 chapters in 26 countries. It was founded by MIT and Harvard students frustrated with the bureaucracy of traditional funding.

How it works

  1. Awesome ideas are submitted by the artists, creators, ideas people and leaders of Newcastle every month. Businesses, individuals, organisations and not-for-profits are all welcome.
  2. Three finalists each month are invited to present to the Awesome Newcastle board during the monthly board meeting. We meet on the last Thursday of the month in a different location around Newcastle.
  3. The board presents the winner with $1,000 cash. The ten board members of Awesome Newcastle provide the grant money from their own pockets. Awesome Newcastle takes nothing in return.
