Week of April 4th: Creator Programs, Grants and Prizes
YOU are capable of winning funding. Are you willing to APPLY?
It’s a new month which means there are plenty of more organizations looking to support the growth of your business.
Remember, you’ll never know until you apply, right? So let’s stay motivated!
Before we jump into the grants for this week, here are some resources you might find helpful.
If you’re looking to better track the opportunities you apply for, check out Gabby Beckford’s Opportunity Tracker Spreadsheet. This tracker will help you track — how many opportunities you applied for this week or month, your success rate, and when you can anticipate hearing back from potential funders. Since using this tracker, I have become more organized and strategic in my approach. This custom-designed spreadsheet is visually beautiful and keeps me motivated to continue putting myself out there every month.
I’m hosting a co-working session for paid Grants For Creators subscribers on April 27th at 2 pm EST. We'll answer popular questions found on grant applications and brainstorm ways to improve our responses together. This is a great opportunity for those who struggle with applying to grants because they don’t have time to craft thoughtful answers or those who want to create a template of responses they can reference quickly. Learn more about the event and RSVP here.
Now without further ado, here’s a list of 12 funding opportunities with due dates in April and early May. Be on the lookout for the next newsletter on Monday, April 18th. Good luck!
