We’re Here to Help.

For those who want to help business owners through the crisis:

Michigan’s women-owned businesses and women entrepreneurs need you now more than ever.

Because of donations from people like you, Michigan Women Forward provides microloans to women and minorities who don’t have access to traditional loans from banks. The current COVID-19 crisis and the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order poses difficult challenges for business owners, and many are struggling to stay open. Consider providing a helping hand to an entrepreneur by contributing to Michigan Women Forward’s Resilience Fund or by sharing your skills and talents.

Share your skills, expertise, or services with an entrepreneur:

Do you have expertise that could potentially help an entrepreneur in need through the pandemic? Please consider signing up to assist an entrepreneur through the COVID-19 Entrepreneur Assistance Project. We will compile a list of people willing to help and will try to match you with an entrepreneur with a need.
