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 awarded TWO $1,500 grants at our March 5, 2021 meeting at Plantation Palms Golf & Country Club. These grants were awarded to existing women owned, for-profit businesses.

For more information about the grant program, please contact Judy Nicolosi, WNC Treasurer & Past President at or 813-600-9848.
