About The Training
We are thrilled to share the success of Cohort 1, the inaugural installment of our transformative training program. This groundbreaking initiative was specifically designed to empower and uplift women of color, providing them with the essential tools and insights necessary to navigate the intricate world of government grants effectively.
In our first-ever training session, we had the privilege of hosting 20 enthusiastic participants, all eager to enhance their knowledge and skills. Together, we delved into various crucial aspects of grant acquisition, including the deciphering of grant application acronyms, aligning proposals with donor objectives, and unveiling the potential for for-profit businesses to access grants. Additionally, we highlighted the critical importance of avoiding “Mission creep,” ensuring that businesses maintain their core values while seeking funding opportunities.
What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that all proceeds from Cohort 1 went directly to the Joy of Giving Joy Foundation, advancing its mission to support initiatives that empower and uplift women in business.
Through Cohort 1 and subsequent sessions, we are committed to providing ongoing support and opportunities, ultimately fostering a more inclusive and equitable business landscape for women of color.
At Mental Money, we are deeply committed to making a positive impact in our community and beyond. We believe that giving back is not just a responsibility but a privilege. That’s why we recently donated $1300 to the Giving Joy Foundation, an organization that shares our passion for supporting small businesses.
The Giving Joy Foundation’s mission resonates with our values. They understand the vital role that small businesses play in our economy and the importance of providing them with the support they need to thrive. Our donation is not just about the monetary value; it’s a testament to our dedication to fostering growth and prosperity in our local business community.
We firmly believe that by working together, we can create a brighter future for all. It is our hope that our contribution to the Giving Joy Foundation will not only provide immediate assistance to a small business but also inspire others to join us in making a meaningful difference. Together, we can spread joy and support where it’s needed most, and together, we can build a stronger, more vibrant community. Thank you for being a part of our mission to give back and uplift those who need it most.
