My Founder Story & BankCherokee supporting women businesses.

Introducing Fueled by Purpose micro grants.

Every week through June, a $500 grant will be given to a female-founded small business in need.

In response to the global health crisis, My Founders Story is partnering with BankCherokee to launch Fueled by Purpose micro grants. Every week through June, we will award a $500 grant to a female-founded small business in need.

To qualify for a Fueled by Purpose 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 women-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.

Every Monday beginning April 20, 2020, one $500 grant winner will be randomly selected from grant applications submitted the week prior. Grant winners will be contacted via email and announced on My Founder Story’s website and social media. Applications are limited to one entry per week per business and business owner. Grant winners forfeit eligibility to win future grants. Before applying, please read the Fueled by Purpose micro grant official rules and privacy policy.

Since launching in 2018, My Founder Story has donated more than $200,000 in grants and services to women. For more information about My Founder Story vist:
