April 2023 Grants & Funding Opportunities
61 Funding opportunities for April 2023
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting so many Grants For Creators subscribers at Podcast Movement Evolutions in Vegas!
Thank you for attending my podcast sponsorship session and making the time to say hello throughout the conference.
It meant so much to me to hear that this newsletter is shining a bright light on opportunities creatives wouldn’t have known about or wouldn’t have considered applying to.
Of the many GFC subscribers I met, shout out to Tsipporah the Explorer from Soul Sistas Sleep Meditations Podcast who is crushing it in the sleep meditation space.
Grants For Creators is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
As for updates, we’ve officially moved the Grants For Creators newsletter to a monthly format. We hope this format helps you better plan for the month ahead.
For April we are sharing (61) funding opportunities including grants for Black journalists (#11), documentary production (#20), aspiring NYC walking tour guides (#27), early-stage women tech founders (#32), entrepreneurs (#23, #24, #39, #40, #43), diverse unpublished illustrators and authors (#53), and more.
All grants have deadlines from April 1 - 30th. There’s still time to apply for these grants with March 31st deadlines too.
Also, we regularly share additional funding opportunities that do not make it in our newsletter via our subscriber chat available via the Substack app. Please join us there to continuously stay in the know.
Lastly, we’ve updated a few of our playlists with new awards (indicated with “NEW” in the title):
We’ll be back in your inbox with the May newsletter on Monday, April 17th.
Featured Grant: Study Abroad Redo Grant
This is a chance for you to win $5,000 in funding for an intentional travel experience for those who never had the opportunity to study abroad and want a chance at a “redo.” Not just a vacation and not an academic credit class—somewhere in between intentional, specific, and growth-oriented.
Deadline: April 15, 2023
Featured Grant: [NEW] The TL Effect
Encouraging start-ups led by Women of Color, one recipient every year receives a $20,000 grant. Plus, brand amplification, business and financial advice from founders, and close mentorship by our ThirdLove team. You must be a Woman of Color who founded a consumer-focused, early stage start-up that has an existing product or service, but has not received venture capital funding.
Deadline: Not disclosed
Featured Grant: [NEW] Women of Color Grant
Women of color-owned businesses will receive $10,000 and $20,000 grants and access to education and small group networking. For-profit business with one to five years in business preferred. Minimum annual revenue of $100,000 strongly preferred.
Deadline: April 28, 2023
