The Dean is Dead. Long Live the Dean!

4 Mar

We’re thrilled to announce that Eric Boyd will be taking over the reins as the new Dean of the Toronto Awesome Foundation. I (Geoffrey) had always hoped to be first of many Toronto Deans and am excited to see what new ideas and innovations Eric helps us achieve over the coming year.

Dedicated to Awesome? Become a Trustee.

30 Aug

The Toronto Awesome Foundation has an opening! After months of fun and service to Awesome, Trustees Michael and Jenn are moving on to bigger and better things. This means there’s a spot open on our Board.


If so, please e-mail us with your name, contact info, and answers to these three questions:

  1. Tell us about yourself.
  2. What is awesome?
  3. What has been your favourite Awesome Foundation project so far? And why? You can include non-Toronto ones.

We look forward to hearing from you!

UPDATE: What’s Involved.

By becoming a Trustee, you’re agreeing to:

  1. Give $100 each month.
  2. Make the meetings a priority. (We meet the last Thursday of every month.)
  3. Win some, lose some, and be OK with that. (In terms of which projects get chosen.)

The commitment is about 90 mins a month. 30 to 45 mins reading the submissions. And 45 mins to an hour at the meeting. Information on our process (which is very loose) can be found here.
