first awesome winners of 2024

I’m so proud to say that the Awesome Foundation of Santa Cruz just gave away it’s 13th micro-grant! That’s $13,000 going out into the community to make Santa Cruz more awesome!

Congratulations to the first two winners of 2024! In January, the group selected Melissa Kreisa of MK Contemporary Gallery for her project Rydell Foundation Showcase and February’s winner was Suzanne Connolly & Jessie Marie for their project Mic Drop! Open Mic. Check out past projects here
