Founded in Boston in 2009, the Awesome Foundation gives monthly grants of $1,000 through its nationwide network of chapters, each of which raises the money from about 10 local “micro-financers,” to different projects in the arts and sciences.

In August, nonprofit Code in the Schools received a $1,000 grant to help fund its video-game development program for Baltimore city school students.
