HerRise MicroGrant




The Yva Jourdan Foundation, the nonprofit arm of HerSuiteSpot, raises money to help Women of Color entrepreneurs gain access to the coaching, community and capital they need to take their businesses to the next level.

The Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. in partnership with HerSuiteSpot has provided microgrants to Women of Color entrepreneurs since 2017 as a way to assist them in starting or growing a business.

Small business grants are useful for financing a particular small business need. Past recipients used their growth grants for computers, equipment, marketing materials, software purchase, website creation and more.

  • 51% owned by women of color

  • Currently registered in the US

  • Less than $1 million in gross revenue


Apply by 11:59 pm on the last day of the month to be eligible for that month.


  • Ongoing (Last Day of Every Month)
