Are You A Woman Looking For A Grant For Your Creative Arts Business?… You’ve Found The Right Site

Art adds beauty to our world. And art can take many forms. Sometimes, art can even be a business venture for women courageous enough to invest their time, creativity and energy.

We’ve heard so many stories from professional female artists that we know who say that owning a business in the creative arts space can be a huge challenge.

We at WomensNet are inspired by women who are driven to use their skills to create art. We know that art provides a benefit to individuals and communities, alike. We want to see more women doing what they love — especially when they’re creating beauty.

We know that women have not been treated equally in the creative arts world. We know how creative women are and we believe your creative work should be valued equally. That’s why we give “Business Specific” Grants based on each month’s category — including a grant specific to women in the creative arts industry during the month of October.

 

October’s Business Specific Grant is Creative Arts

Your Creative Arts applications can include any subcategory such as:

  • Pottery & Painting
  • Jewelry Makers
  • Creative Art Classes
  • Art Director
  • Photographer
  • Graphic Design
  • Performing Arts
  • Creative Arts Teacher
  • Interior Deign
  • Production Artist
  • Writers
  • Film Makers

Here’s How You Become Eligible for Our October “Creative Arts” Business Specific Grant

— 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 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 $2,000 Mini Grants that we give away 12 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.
