A Google search for women business grants will bring up a long list of sites. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites. And nearly always, these sites want personal information, financial disclosures, interviews and there’s an exhausting form to fill out.
We’re not your typical grant site. WomensNet helps you find real grants, loans, and other funding. Yes, 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 a big help.
The best place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Business women from Massachusetts (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. And every month, our judges award $1,000 to women-owned business. Even better — the 12 monthly winners compete for a year-end Amber Grant of $10,000! Which means a few minutes of your time now can translated into $11,000 in grant money for your business.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in Massachusetts waiting to help women business owners just like you!
WomensNet launched the Amber Grant in 1998 to honor the memory of an ambitious young woman who died at the age of 19, before she could realize her entrepreneurial aspirations. Today, these grants help women like you fulfill the dreams that Amber could not.
Every month, WomensNet judges award one or more Amber Grants of $1,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those grant recipients is selected to receive the $10,000 Amber Grant.
By telling us your story. There are no lengthy, complicated documents to complete; just answer a few questions about your business. But hurry—applications are due by the end of the month for the next $1,000 Amber Grant.
