WATCH: The Awesome Project

Jul 1, 2019

Creating a self-generating culture of awesomeness is the simple, yet profound mission of The Awesome Foundation, Rochester Chapter. The local branch of this global community gives out a thousand dollars at a time, in the form of micro grants, to advance a wide range of projects and initiatives spearheaded by Rochester residents intended to make all of us fall in love with our city and, of course, recognize its awesomeness. On this edition of Need to Know we learn how it works and the light the project is hoping to shine on Rochester.
