Maganda Maker, are you emerging or established in the business? 

Are you looking for capital to assist you to start, grow or develop your business? 

The Club does NOT provide grants or impact capital but is able to assist you to be grant-ready and loan-ready.  This page provides you with a list of resources that you can access for free + some recommendations and connections.

How can Grants help you? 

To keep up with what grants are available on a monthly basis be sure to refer to this link from Everyday Strategy: 

We are currently piloting a few activities to assist some Club members with their capital needs such as through a  ‘pay it forward’ voucher, assistance with writing through Good Return’s grant writer Alex, and a few other activities in the pipeline.

Are you grant-ready?

Do you have documentation (such as a business plan) and supporting letters available? 


If you would like us to assist you with some resources and connections for grants and capital then reach out via email.
