Apply for a Grant

Applications Are Now Being Accepted

The micro grant program from Publish Her Story (formerly My Founder Story) is dedicated to providing resources to female-identifying business owners. Since 2018, more than $250,000 in grants and services have been donated to women in business.

Thanks to our community partner, BankCherokee, applications are now being accepted for the 2022 Publish Her Story micro grant program for woman-owned businesses. Each month, a number of qualifiers will be selected via random drawing. The names of the qualifiers and their businesses will be published on Publish Her Story’s website and/or social media, and the community will have the opportunity to cast their vote for the winner.

To qualify for a micro grant, you must be a woman business owner who is a legal resident of the United States, and 18 years of age or older. You must have a majority woman-owned (51%-100%) legally established business entity in the U.S. that is at least one year old and generates less than $100,000 in annual revenue.

Before applying, please read the official rules and privacy policy.

IMPORTANT: Please do not submit an application if you are NOT a majority woman-owned business. If you have already applied for a micro grant in 2022, please do not submit another application. If you meet the grant requirements, your business has the potential to be selected as a qualifier through the end of this year.
