My Founder Story announced a continuation of its Fueled by Purpose micro grant program for womxn-owned businesses in 2021. Each month, a number of grant qualifiers are selected via random drawing. The names of the qualifiers and their businesses are published on My Founder Story’s website and social media, and the community has the opportunity to cast their vote for the winner.
On Monday, February 22, the next round of four grant qualifiers will be announced on My Founder Story’s Instagram and Facebook. The winner will receive a grant for their business and—along with the qualifiers—will be featured in My Founder Story’s soon-to-be released quarterly publication, “Fierce Founders Fueled by Purpose,” an anthology of stories about womxn using business to make a difference in the lives of others and the world.
Applications are currently being accepted for the February grant. To qualify, you must be a womxn business owner who is a legal resident of the United States, and 18 years of age or older. You must have a majority womxn-owned legally established business entity in the U.S. that is at least one year old and generates less than $100,000 in annual revenue. For more information and to apply, visit the Grants page.
Fueled by Purpose is the nonprofit sister company to My Founder Story and is dedicated to providing resources to womxn business owners. Since 2018, more than $220,000 in grants and services have been donated to fierce founders.
