Santa Fe, NM – The Santa Fe chapter of the Awesome Foundation is accepting applications for a $1,000 micro-grant that will be awarded to invest in a local project that aims to make Santa Fe a better place to live, work, and play. Applications are due by March 31, 2017, with the grant to be awarded in late May.

 

The foundation funds local projects in science, technology, art, education, entertainment, or social good. Projects should demonstrate a clear community benefit with immediate impact by helping other people or creating a better environment for them. To date, the chapter has awarded ten grants to fund community projects.

 

The grant application is open to individuals and groups with no prerequisites. Applications can be submitted online at the chapter’s website, www.awesomefoundation.org/en/chapters/santafe, and should be well defined.

 

The chapter recently awarded grants for community projects to: (1) Playschool of the Arts for Kids, a local 501(c)(3) preschool, to purchase two new rugs for the school’s toddler and preschool playrooms; and (2) Santa Fe Children’s Museum to fund the first year of the museum’s Foster Friends program, which will provide free access to the museum for Santa Fe’s foster children, their caregivers, and the county’s Children, Youth and Families Department.
