Are You A Woman Business Owner Looking For A Grant Up To $25,000?… You’ve Found The Right Site.

We award three separate $25,000 women-owned business grants at the end of each year.  

The first $25,000 grant goes to one of our previous $10,000 monthly Amber Grant winners.  The second $25,000 grant goes to one of our previous $10,000 monthly Business Category Grant winners. The final $25,000 grant goes to one of our previous $10,000 monthly Startup Grant winners. 

That means you can qualify for a $25,000 grant three ways.  The first is by winning the Amber Grant for the month in which you apply. The second is by winning the monthly Startup Grant.


By winning the Business Category Grant for whatever month that falls in (listed below).  

For example, if you have a “fashion” business and you apply in July, you could win the $10,000 Amber Grant in July.  Or you could win the Business Category Grant for fashion in December.

The good news is —  just one application will qualify you for all three Amber Grants. 

Here’s How You Become Eligible for Our $25,000 Amber 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 $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
    — June: Business Support Services (e.g. accounting, consulting)
    — July: Animal Services
    — 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 define a “startup” as a business in the “idea phase,” or one that has only had minimal sales (less than $10,000). Even though startups are eligible for all our monthly grants, we’ve created an additional grant especially for this underserved sector.

  • The three (3) $25,000 Year-End Grants
    At the end of every year, we select 3 winners from the 36 monthly $10,000 Amber Grant, Startup, and Business Specific grant 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 »
