May 2023 Grants and Funding Opportunities
66 Funding opportunities for May 2023
I’m excited to share we’ve discovered (66) funding opportunities for May. Please bookmark this page (www.grantsforcreators.com) because we’ll continue to add new awards on a rolling basis. And if you missed April’s newsletter, there are still plenty of grants with upcoming deadlines.
I’ll be honest, though… this round was tough to curate.
We’ve noticed the number of awards slowing down, especially small business grants, which could be due to nationwide economic uncertainty.
Either way, we are keeping a close eye on this and will keep you abreast of any trends we see. In the meantime, there are plenty of opportunities to qualify for in May and resources to tap into to prepare for funding, like our grant writing workshop, which breaks down the secrets grant writers use to craft winning grant proposals.

Resources For Creators
Women of Color Podcasters Retreat
I’m hosting a relaxing retreat for Women of Color audio creators and professionals in Vermont this Fall!
Join me for an immersive 3-day all-inclusive getaway where we’ll mastermind, forge deep connections, and map out our next move together.
Your network is an important asset as a creator.
Having a strong support system combats loneliness, presents more opportunities, and keeps us encouraged. I wouldn’t be where I’m at today without a strong network in the podcasting space.
If you’re looking for an intimate alternative to the hustle and bustle of podcasting conferences or virtual events, reserve your spot and join me in Vermont. Spots are limited to only 21 Women of Color attendees.
Retreat Dates: Thursday, September 14th to Sunday, September 17th, 2023
Location: Pomfret, Vermont 🍁
