WomensNet was one of the very first online organizations to give women-owned businesses grants. Starting in 1998, the Amber Grant was created to honor the memory of Amber Wigdahl, who was a special young woman who died at just 19 years old, before realizing her business dreams.

Today, we carry on that tradition by giving away a $10,000 Amber Grant every month, plus an additional $25,000 Amber Grant to one of the preceding 12 monthly Amber Grant winners.
