Grant Program

Each spring, Women-n-Charge offers grant opportunities to local business women for business or career advancement in the form of business-related equipment or services or continuing education.

In order to raise the funds for these special grants, each year Women-n-Charge holds a tea event which enables us to offer these grants to local deserving business women. Last year, we were unable to hold the event due to the pandemic; however, to learn more about our past tea fundraiser, please visit the Tea/Dinner 2019 page.

This year, we are awarding TWO $1,500 grants at our March 5, 2021 meeting at Plantation Palms Golf & Country Club. These grants will be awarded to existing women owned, for-profit businesses. All Grant Applications are due by February 19, 2021.

WNC requests that all applicants plan to attend the March 5, 2021 WNC meeting.

To fill out the Grant Application, either download the PDF (fill out and print/save to send - instructions on last page of the application) or fill out the application online through the buttons below. Please note, the online application must be filled out in its entirety and submitted. Once it is submitted successfully, you will see a confirmation notice on the screen after submission and emailed a confirmation of the successful submission (please check your spam folder if you do not see the email notification).
