The Awesome Foundation

http://www.awesomefoundation.org

We are an ever-growing, worldwide network of people devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe. Created in the long hot summer days of 2009 in Boston, the Foundation distributes a series of monthly $1,000 grants to projects and their creators. The money is pooled together from the coffers of ten or so self-organizing “micro-trustees” and given upfront in cash, check, or gold doubloons. The chapters are autonomous and organized by the trustees around geographic areas or topics of interest.
The Foundation provides these grants with no strings attached and claims no ownership over the projects it supports. It is, in the words of one of our trustees, a micro-genius grant for flashes of micro-brilliance.

Philanthropy Action

http://www.philanthropyaction.com

Our vision is for philanthropy to evolve into a sector that is more thoughtful and effective. We want to see money move to places where it does the most good and away from where it does the least. In short, we want philanthropy to behave more like a market. We recognize that markets have failings and aren’t appropriate or feasible in all situations. Where they aren’t, we want the available alternatives to be based on knowledge about what is truly helpful.
