From HacDC Wiki
Project Awesome is a way for HacDC members to fund projects and increase the awesomeness of the space. Any members can propose a project, and each member can vote on the projects they want to support. Each month, any funds beyond our expenses get divided among the active projects according to the member votes. Here is the full proposal (approved by the members at the 11 Sept 2012 meeting).
If you would like to support one of the Project Awesome projects with an additional donation, just send funds to HacDC (using PayPal, Dwolla, or a paper check) and include the project code as a comment. The money will be earmarked for use in the project you have selected!
Members of HacDC can vote to support one of these projects by sending an email with the project code to 'firstname.lastname@example.org'.
