About WomensNet and The Amber Grant Foundation:
WomensNet founded the Amber Grant Foundation in 1998. The Foundation was set up with one goal in mind: The Amber Grants are awarded several times a year to deserving women entrepreneurs in loving memory of Amber Wigdahl, who died in 1981 at the young age of 19. Today, WomensNet carries on that tradition, giving away at least $10,000 every month in Amber Grant money. They have also expanded their grant-giving to include a year-end grant of $25,000. Besides awarding grants, WomensNet is an entrepreneurial community of women who create unique content and special reports to help women business owners. Learn more at Ambergrantsforwomen.com
