Our Mission

The COVID-19 crisis has put millions of woman-owned small businesses at risk. As government programs begin to run dry, female entrepreneurs who have historically faced difficulties securing equity capital and are less likely to have an established business banking relationship are left with few options.

The Washington Women Entrepreneurs COVID-19 Recovery Fund was created to provide emergency relief for women-owned small businesses. Our mission is to help save as many women-owned businesses as possible by providing emergency grants of up to $5,000 to female founders who are in desperate need of funds.
