Walker’s Legacy Announces $4,000 in COVID-19 Relief Micro-Grants for Women of Color Entrepreneurs
Walker’s Legacy, the largest digital platform for multicultural women in business has launched its $4,000 COVID-19 Micro-Grant in partnership with Gates Foundation.
Washington, DC—December 8, 2020—Walker’s Legacy is proud to announce the release of its COVID-19 Relief Micro-Grant. As part of the continued commitment to elevate minority women-owned small businesses that have been impacted by COVID-19, Walker’s Legacy is inviting multicultural women, small business owners, across the United States to apply for the Walker’s Legacy COVID-19 Relief Micro-Grant.
Through this grant, Walker’s Legacy intends to reward eight women with $500 for their entrepreneurial efforts. To apply, respondees must submit a response to Walker’s Legacy COVID-19 Impact Survey funded by the Gates Foundation. Through this survey, Walker’s Legacy will establish quantitative and qualitative data on the effects of COVID-19 to assist multicultural businesswomen, and develop an action plan to support multicultural businesswomen in combating economic setbacks based on the current environment. The goal is to reach multicultural women who have been deeply affected by the impacts of COVID-19 through this survey.
“The global impacts of the pandemic are undeniable, the COVID-19 Relief Micro Grant has the ability to help the women-owned businesses who need support,” said Natalie Madeira Cofield, Founder & CEO of Walker’s Legacy. “As small businesses across the nation work to understand the short and long-term implications on business operations, Walker’s Legacy is determined to provide assistance to and a voice for the fastest growing entrepreneurial segment in the nation: multicultural women in business.”
By submitting a response to this survey, each respondee will be automatically entered for a chance to receive a $500 grant. Survey respondents must be submitted by December 28th at 11:59 PM EST. Additionally, two survey respondents each week will be selected at random for a $50 Amazon gift card and a 1-year free membership to Walker’s Legacy.
The COVID-19 Impact Study and the COVID-19 Relief Micro Grant initiatives are reflective of the continued commitment Walker’s Legacy has to multicultural women entrepreneurs.
