A Google search will bring up a long list of sites that offer some grants for women. But most either look like scams or complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites. Endless forms and applications that ask personal questions and demand financial records. That’s not us.
We’re different. WomensNet can help you find real grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture. 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.
A simple place to start is with our Amber Grant for Women. Business women from North Carolina (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. Our judges award this $1,000 Amber Grant every month – so today would be the perfect time to apply. And if you’re one of our 21 monthly winners — you’re automatically eligible to win our $10,000 year-end grant. That’s $11,000 in grant money in less than a year.
After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in North Carolina 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.
