The Council of Awesome and more generally the Being Awesome is Awesome Fest community expresses its heartfelt gratitude for the several organizations who have enabled us to best cause awesome happenings within our communities.
High above downtown Seattle, Columbia Tower Club boasts one of the most spectacular views of the city. With onsite business amenities and high-tech conferencing capabilities, the Club also sets the stage for the city’s most sought-after networking events for personal enrichment.
Awesome Seattle is a guerrilla philanthropic organization devoted to forwarding the interest of awesomeness in the universe. Every month we award a no-strings-attached cash grant of $1,000 to a project that we deem Awesome. We're interested in a wide variety of projects, ranging from friendly postcards sent to random strangers to light festivals to pop-up museums (and all sorts of other things).
Ventures is a Seattle-based nonprofit that empowers aspiring entrepreneurs with limited resources and unlimited potential. We provide access to business training, capital, coaching and hands-on learning opportunities for entrepreneurs. We serve those in our community for whom traditional business development services are out of reach, with a focus on women, people of color, immigrants, and individuals with low income. Our ultimate goal is to support individuals to increase their income potential, achieve long-term financial stability, and provide for their families, and enrich their communities through small business ownership.
