Non-Profit Business & Organizations

Are You A Woman Looking For A Grant For Your Non-Profit Business?… You’ve Found The Right Site

December 2023 Winner

It was not a big surprise to us that around 75% of the workforce for non-profit businesses are women.

It’s also not a big surprise that non-profit business grants are nearly impossible to find. We are inspired by women who are driven to use their non-profit to provide a good or service to benefit their community…  And who want to invest their time and passions into a purpose-driven business model, not a profit-obsessed model. We love that about you!!

We realize you need to make enough money to take home a reasonable salary; it’s important work, but it’s not charitable work. We know it is even harder to find financial support for your non-profit business — particularly in the form of a non-profit business grant…

We’re WomensNet — and we get it.

That’s why non-profit businesses and organizations are eligible to win any of our THREE monthly $10,000 Amber Grants!

Here’s How You Become Eligible for All Our Monthly $10,000 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 “Business Specific Category” Grant that we give away each month for the next 11 months. Here are those categories and months that they are awarded:
    — January: Skilled Trades
    — February: Health, Fitness & Wellness
    — March: Food & Beverage
    — April: Sustainability
    — May: Mental & Emotional Support

    — August: Hair Care & SkinCare
    — September: Education & Child Care
    — October: Creative Arts
    — November: STEM
    — December: Fashion & Interior Design
    At the end of the year, we will award one of the monthly recipients an additional $25,000 grant
  • The $10,000 Monthly Startup grant.
    We award this grant to businesses in the "idea stage" or with less than $10,000 in revenue.

  • $25,000 Year-End Grants.
    At the end of every year, we select THREE $25,000 winners from the 12 monthly $10,000 Amber Grant winners. This means your business could win a total of $35,000 in grant money by submitting just one application.
