AweSummit 2019

May 3-5, 2019 in Chicago

What is the Awesome Foundation?

The Awesome Foundation is a network of giving circles, and every month our chapters award $1,000 grants to make local communities more awesome, donating over $3 million across the world in just nine years. We fund fun, community projects like mini-golf along Milwaukee Avenue on Parking Day to critical social action projects like supplying meals at the end of the Red Line to those in need, and everything in between. You can see our global impact and learn more about past projects at

What is the Awesome Summit?

The Awesome Summit affords an opportunity for Awesome Foundation chapters to get together to exchange ideas and experiences, and to strengthen and grow the movement. Since the first Awesome Foundation chapter was started in 2009, we have held five summits -- Boston (2012), New York City (2013), Ottawa (2014), Seattle (2016), and Washington DC (2017) -- and our sixth summit will be held in Chicago in 2019.
