WHY THIS GRANT AND WHY NOW

Women business owners are the foundation of communities everywhere. We are leading demographic starting new businesses in record numbers as a main contributor to a strong economy employing members of our communities, investing in our communities and upholding our communities. Now, more than ever, we need the help and support of the communities we serve. We need you!!!

Many women entrepreneurs and business owners in the United States and around the world have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; forcing many of us to close our doors, layoff staff, scramble to figure out how to manage the operational costs with lost revenues and to survive and rise up from the storm.

As a entrepreneurs, business owners and advocate for women living their dreams and building legacies, we're compelled to take action to do something to help my sisters who are devastated and suffering. We are resilient and persevere through the toughest challenges.

Together, we can achieve so much! Together, we RISE!!!
