Amber Grant:

$10,000 monthly grants and a chance at a $25,000 annual grant is available.

WomensNet founded the “Amber Grant” in 1998. The grant was set up with one goal in mind: to honor the memory of a very special young woman, Amber Wigdahl, who died at just 19 years old — before realizing her business dreams.

Today, WomensNet carries on that tradition, proudly giving away at least $30,000 every month in Amber Grant money. In recognition of the diversity of businesses owned by women, we’ve also expanded our grant-giving to include “Marketing Grants,” “Business Category Grants,” as well as two “$25,000 Year End Grants.”

Pure Leaf Grant:

A $2,000 grant is available with an application deadline of October 31, 2023.

Pure Leaf believes “No Is Beautiful.” Nearly 2/3 of moms have questioned their value because they were overwhelmed with doing it all. Household chores, childcare, and job stresses feel endless, and saying “no” to those responsibilities often comes at a real financial cost.

That’s why we started the “No” Grants: to give women a little extra financial support to help them say “no” to unrealistic expectations. Last year, as part of our $1 million commitment to dismantle the barriers women face when they say “no,” we partnered with SeekHer Foundation, an organization working to dismantle societal expectations that negatively impact women. We created the “No” Grants, a fund providing short-term support to women who want to say “no” more in the workplace.

Youth Well-Being Prize Competition

The Youth Well-Being Prize Competition is looking for young change makers, between the ages of 10 and 29, with innovative solutions to make educational materials and important information easily accessible to young people. These solutions should build inclusive knowledge, meaning that young people, no matter their background, culture, or identity, would have equal access to education and information that’s relevant to and respectful of their experiences. By increasing inclusive knowledge and access, young people can protect their well-being, stay safe, and make a positive impact on their own lives and communities. USAID is seeking solutions created by young people, for young people, and these solutions should prioritize inclusivity and accessibility, and recognize the diverse identities of young people in the areas of mental health, digital harm, safeguarding, gender-based violence, and climate change.
