EILEEN FISHER Inc. will award up to 5 grants of $12,500 to the recipients of the 2013 Women’s Business Grant Program. Your business must be innovative, 100% women owned and produce products that foster environmental and economic health in the global community. (This business grant is NOT meant for consulting services, medical practices, and personal services. We favor product-based enterprises.)
Applicants that have been in business at least 3 years will be considered based on the strength of their business plan. Specifically, we are interested in how the EILEEN FISHER grant money will enhance the growth of your business and how your financial documents reflect the current health and future potential of the business. [Note: in the initial application we only request info about gross and net sales. If your business is selected as a semifinalist, we require the previous 3 years P&L and Balance Sheets plus cash flow projections for the next 3 years. If you cannot provide this, please consider waiting until the next grant cycle to apply.]
Only for profit businesses or for profit/non-profit hybrids (social enterprises) are eligible for this grant. Nonprofit organizations may qualify for funding through other programs listed on our web site grant page: www.eileenfisher.com/grants.
BUSINESSES THAT ARE SELECTED AS SEMI-FINALISTS WILL BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AFTER SEPTEMBER 15th, 2013.
Unfortunately, if you don't hear from us by September 15th, your application was not selected in the grant cycle. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we cannot notify people individually or provide direct feedback on individual applications. Please know that each year we receive a diverse set of applications which impact the factors that contribute to how businesses are selected by the Grant Committee to become finalists. Feel free to reapply next year if you feel your business is a strong candidate for this grant.
Deadline for submission is May 31st, 2013 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
