No worries. WomensNet is here to help you.

At the end of the year, we will award one of the monthly recipients an additional $25,000 grant

Here’s How You Become Eligible for Our “Business Specific’ Grants — As Well As All Our Additional Grants:

  1. 1. Apply for our monthly Amber Grant. By applying just once for the $10,000 monthly Amber Grant, you automatically become eligible for that month’s $10,000 Business specific grant
  2. 2. You do NOT have to apply again. Your single Amber Grant application also makes you eligible for any of our other grants, including:
  • The $10,000 quarterly non-profit grant for the next 3 months. (We award this grant 4 times per year).
  • The WomensNet “Marketing Grant.” We give “hands-on” marketing help to a selected female-owned business. It includes strategic sessions with members of our AdvisoryBoard and other "friends of WomensNet.” It also includes professional agency support in developing and executing a marketing plan. This is a grant a non-profit business can win as well.
  • The $10,000 Quarterly Startup grant for the next 3 months. We award this grant 4 times per year.
  • $25,000 Year-End Grants
    At the end of every year, we select a $25,000 winner from the 12 monthly $10,000 Amber Grant winners -and- a $25,000 winner from the 12 Business Category Grants winners. This means your business could win a total of $35,000 in grant money by submitting just one application.

Submitting one application makes you instantly eligible for these multiple grants. Click here for your application »
