Small Business Grants for Women in Wyoming

Discovering small business grants for women in Wyoming can be a challenge.

A quick internet search will bring up a long list of women grant sites. But most either look spammy… or are complicated government (Small Business Administration) sites.  What you’re really looking for is just a simple site with the chance to find some real grant money.

That’s where we come in:  WomensNet can help you find legitimate grants, loans, and other funding for your business venture.  The truth is — you’re still going to have to put in some hard work and time. But if you are 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 Wyoming (and all around America) are eligible to apply for this grant. Our judges award this $1,000 grant every month – so today would be the perfect time to apply.  And if you win this month, you become automatically eligible to win our year-end $10,000 Amber Grant.  So just a few minutes right now could earn you $11,000 in grant money by the end of this year.

After you’ve applied for our grant, please take a bit of time to check out the resources below. There are folks in Wyoming waiting to help women business owners just like you.

What is an Amber Grant?

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.

How Does It Work?

Every month, the WomensNet judges award one or more Qualifying Grants of $1,000 each. Then, at the end of the year, one of those Qualifying Grant recipients is selected to receive the $10,000 Amber Grant.

How Do I Apply?

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 Qualifying Grant.

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

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
