$65 – $75

AWESOME BEND PITCH NIGHT on October 20th, 2015, 6-8:30pm, Deschutes Brewery Tap Room 1044 NW Bond St (Upstairs)

Check out our TV coverage and story: at KTVZ.com


Application deadline: October 1, 2015

Awesome Bend awards a $1000 grant quarterly to a project that will make Bend even more awesome. The definition of “awesome” is intentionally left up to your imagination. It could mean solving a problem, making someone stop and think, or spreading joy– think social good, the environment, technology, arts and beyond!

The grant has no strings attached (other than doing something awesome and telling us about it). We are high on action and low on bureaucracy. The application takes 15 minutes or less. Finalists deliver a 3-minute pitch at Pitch Night, where we select a winner and hand out $1000 on the spot to help them turn their awesome idea into reality.

Our only rules:

1.The project must be feasible and completed within 3 months of the award.

2.The money cannot be used for personal expenses or operating expenses for an established charity.

3.You agree to come back to the next Pitch Night and tell the community all about your project, thus inspiring future awesomeness.

(Hint for success: In your application, state very specifically, how your project will make Bend even more awesome.)
