It’s PWC Grant time!
Each year the Professional Women’s Council awards numerous $500 Grants to our members. As a PWC member, you can apply to receive a grant to use in your business. It’s one more reason to join PWC! #PWCJAX
Please see below for grant application rules.
All PWC members are eligible to apply for a PWC Grant. The Grant application will be completed and submitted online. The actual Grants are awarded in December.
Applications will be reviewed by the Grant Committee.
Due to the obstacles that the COVID19 pandemic has presented to each of us, the Grant Committee has revised the grant application. This year, more so than ever, we aim to help our members with their business needs. In the past, the application and qualifications were based on a member’s PWC involvement, however, this year the emphasis is on learning about the member and how their business/workplace has been affected by the pandemic.
The Grant Committee invites you to take a few minutes to view, complete, and submit your application online beginning Tuesday, September 1 through Sunday, November 8.
Grants can be used for:
- Educational Purposes – workshops, seminars, etc.
- Marketing & Advertising of your business – signage, marketing materials, etc.
- Equipment and Technology – hardware, business software, etc.
- Finance and Accounting – QuickBooks software, etc.
Get more involved with PWC – the more you put in the more you will get out!
