Beyond Spots & Dots Women Owned Small Business Grant Winners

Grant Winners

It wasn’t easy, but we’ve officially selected our three Women-to-Women Grant recipients. Each of these women-owned organizations have admirable missions and have worked tirelessly to pivot their business strategies during the COVID-19 pandemic to continue serving their communities and clients/consumers. Each will be awarded a $5,000 grant to be used to support production, commerce and/or staff affected by the unprecedented coronavirus outbreak.

“It was a really difficult process to choose only three recipients,” said Melanie Querry, Founder & President, Beyond Spots & Dots. “Every application we reviewed had a story that resonated deeply with us. We truly wish we could help each and every applicant. As a woman-owned business, we empathize with what these businesses are currently experiencing. Female entrepreneurs have made such significant strides in the last few years, and it’s important now more than ever to continue supporting them. We’re proud to help where we can and put in the effort to lift one another up during a time like this.”

Please join us in congratulating our Women-to-Women Grant recipients and learn a little more about them below!
