I was idly browsing blogs for inspiration of new topics and I found out about this grant on Work At Home Ideas For Women.
Apparently since 1998, The Amber Foundation, in conjunction with WomensNet.net, has been providing small grants for women business owners, to honor the loss of a young woman who died at the tender age of 19 in 1981.
The purpose of the Amber Grants is to help other women achieve the dreams that Amber could not in her short time with us.
Our primary focus is assisting women who are trying to start small businesses, home-based or online. The grants are small, usually $500 to $1000, and are intended to be used to upgrade equipment, pay for a web site etc – the small but essential expenses that can often make the difference between getting started or being forever stalled.
No repayment is required or expected, although it is hoped that you will pass on the kindness by mentoring & helping others along the way.
All the grants come from this private foundation and are not funded by government or solicited donations.
The grants are issued quarterly.
$500 Grant Awarded Quarterly:
March 2010, June 2010, September 2010 & December 2010
