The Red Backpack Fund, an initiative created by Spanx founder Sara Blakey in partnership with GlobalGiving is making at least 1,000 grants of $5,000 each to female entrepreneurs in the U.S. to help alleviate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Majority women-owned and led businesses and nonprofits in the U.S. are eligible for this grant created to help elevate women entrepreneurs. Grantees will receive $5,000, a “lucky” red backpack and an all-access pass to 80+ MasterClass, which includes Sara Blakely’s class on entrepreneurship.
Each month from April to August, GlobalGiving accepted fund applications, however a sixth and final cycle will open in September 2020. The application portal will open at 12 p.m. ET on Sept. 8 and close at 12 p.m. ET on Sept. 15.
