Awesome Newcastle provides $1,000 grants every month to help community projects in Newcastle, Australia. No strings attached.
We’re for can-do people with ideas and determination. We believe awesome ideas can make a big impact.
We’re here to further the impact with a monthly bag of cash. We’re not a charity and our goal is $0 profit for ourselves.
We’re a foundation created to help the artists, creators, ideas people and leaders of Newcastle.
How it works
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.
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.
