Women Owned: WFA’s Assistance Fund For Women Owned Small Businesses

The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas has established Women Owned, a fund to provide assistance to women owned small businesses experiencing hardship due to COVID-19. Women, particularly minority women, have faced historical disadvantages to accessing the capital necessary for a business to thrive and in the face of unprecedented disruption to revenue streams and business models, WFA is prepared to champion these businesses in the form of $5,000 grants.



Please read all instructions before completing the two part application process. FAQs can be found at the link below as well.




The fund is open to public donations, so anyone can partner with us to support the state’s women owned small businesses in their time of need. WFA has witnessed the generosity of Arkansans when it comes to supporting women and the ripple effect it has had in communities for the last 22 years.
