July 18th: For Veterans, Emerging Journalists, Photographers, Jewelry Makers, and More!
It's an exciting time to be a creator! Do you agree?
Firstly, thank you for coming to last week’s Ask Me Anything!
I hope you found this session helpful and have a new outlook on finding funding as creatives and small biz owners.
The replay will be available to paid subscribers this week, so be on the lookout for the next newsletter.
As a reminder, paid subscribers get access to the full newsletter with all the funding opps we find shared every other week and the archives dating back to January 2022.
Also, I had a chance to chat with the Castos team about my journey from Grant Administrator to winning several grants as a podcaster which led me to create this newsletter. Listen to Grant Funding a Podcast With Danielle Desir Corbett.
Lastly, we’re now on TikTok @grantsforcreators — follow for opportunities not shared in the newsletter and grant-finding tips. I aim to reach my first 500 subscribers by the end of the summer. Join me!
Time to browse through 29 funding opportunities ranging from $250 to $150,000. I’m pretty sure this has been the most funding opportunities shared in one week!
