2021 Mini Grant Awarded to The Giving Gallery

The Giving Gallery

Woman Entrepreneur:
Amanda Lipp

Congratulations to Amanda Lipp, the Founder and CEO of The Giving Gallery for winning WomensNet Mini Grant of $5,000.

The Giving Gallery is an inspiring online platform that mixes a passion for art with a passion for raising awareness around mental health issues. Lipp has said, “We are building an online platform where artists can sell their artwork and share their thoughts about mental health. A portion of every art sale goes to our partnered mental health nonprofits. One of our partners, Mental Health America, is the leading mental health nonprofit in the U.S. We are a small team on a bold mission to bridge the art market with mental health charities.”

WomensNet non-profit grant will assist Lipp in her continuation of raising awareness towards mental health issues through art.
