In January of 2016, Gender Amplified received a grant from the Awesome Foundation’s New York chapter to support work we’re doing in our community. Read the full announcement to learn more about the award and the foundation.
According to its website, The Awesome Foundation is a “global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1000 at a time. Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, $1000 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter’s “trustees” and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.”
Gender Amplified is proud to be recognized by this community of givers. The award meant a great deal to our board of directors and our investors, but it will mean that much more to all the girls and women who benefit from our mentorship programs, community events and ongoing support.
