ATLANTA - June 16, 2014 - PRLog -- ATLANTA- The Atlanta Awesome Foundation is now seeking additional trustees to join a network of people worldwide to pay it forward and fund awesome projects. The foundation provides $1,000 a month to support impacting projects and their creators. The money is pooled together from up to ten “micro-trustees”. The trustees will choose the best application and formally award the grant to the winner during their monthly “Awesome Hour” event. Awesome Atlanta is looking to expand their number of trustees to maintain the significance of the foundation’s local influence.

“The Trustees of the Atlanta Chapter are a group of regular citizens of the metro area who have decided that we are going to be the change we want to see,” said Dionne Mahaffey, chapter founder.

Awesome Atlanta funded their first grant in April 2014. Since then, the organization has granted three local community projects. The most recent grant was awarded to Goodie Hack. Goodie Hack brings technology buffs and non-buffs together for brainstorming and web/app development workshops. Awesome Atlanta has also awarded grants to S.M.A.R.T Moves Chess Club and the Cross Keys foundation for the construction of the Little Free Library.

"The cool thing about The Awesome Foundation is that there are no set rules about what we will fund or not fund.”  We’d love to add a few more altruistic Atlantans to our group.”
