Small Business Grants for Women in Colorado

Think small business grants for women in Colorado are tough to find?  We give away 3 each month.

If you’ve researched where to find a small business grant, you know the drill.  A Google search will bring up a long list of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites.

We’re much different. Since 1998, WomensNet has helped woman-business owners find legitimate grants, loans, and other funding (including women business owners from Colorado). Of course, you’re still going to have to put in some hard work and time. But if you’re serious about getting your business to the next level, you’ll find our site is a big help.

We give away three $10,000 grants every month

A great place to start is with our Amber Grants for Women. Business women from Colorado (and all over North America) are eligible to apply. In fact, 2018 March Amber Grant winner Know Your Norma hails from Denver.

Our judges award THREE $10,000 Amber Grant each month – so today would be the perfect time to apply. If you’re one of our three winners, you’re automatically eligible for one of our THREE $25,000 year-end Amber Grants. Take some time to fill out our simple application — it could truly be life-changing.

After you’ve applied for our grant, feel free to view the resources below. There are folks in Colorado waiting to help women business owners just like you.  Take advantage of every resource to help with your business dreams!!

Does WomensNet Offer Amber Grants to Women In My State?

Yes!! We've been offering business resources and grants to women in all 50 states (and Canada) since 1998. We have three different $10,000 Amber Grant winners EVERY month... Plus at the end of the year, each Amber Grant winner for that year is eligible for an additional $25,000 grant!

How Does It Work?

Submit your application. Our WomensNet judges review every application. Then we announce the three $10,000 Amber Grant winners the following month by the 23rd. At the end of the year, we award THREE more $25,000 grants -- chosen from our previous monthly grant winners for this year. That means you have the opportunity to receive $35,000 from WomensNet by filling out one two-question grant application.

How Do I Apply?

Simple. By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete. Just answer two questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for all three of this month's $10,000 Amber Grant opportunities.

Six steps you should take when looking for a business grant:

1. Analyze your organization's needs. Make sure you have a solid understanding of the:
  • Problem or need you want to address
  • Audience that will benefit from your product or service
  • Kind and amount of support you need
  • Resources and commitment your group brings to the project
  • Potential and prospective partners in the community
2. Research various types of foundations. Learn the operational differences between:
  • Corporate foundations
  • Civic foundations
  • Private foundations
3. Look for funding matches. Identify funders who:
  • Are able and likely to fund projects in your geographic area
  • Share a similar core mission or goals
  • Have already supported similar ventures or projects
4. Compile a list of prospects. Group them in two ways:
  • By Geographic Location (city, state, region)
  • By field of interest or program subject
5. Review and refine your list. Eliminate prospects that DON’T FUND:
  • In your state
  • Your type of organization
  • Your subject
  • The type of support you need
  • Your size project
6. Select the most appropriate funding prospects. Research them in detail:
  • Contact them directly to request annual reports and other publications
  • Search print and online media to identify projects that received grants in the past
  • Ask former grant recipients for advice and why they felt they were successful over other applicants
