Open Applications For Black DadPreneur's Day $1,000 Grants
Updated: Jun 4, 2021
I'm excited to announce applications are open for $1,000 grants for ten Black DadPreneurs!
Empowering Black DadPreneuers matters and If we are going to close the 8X wealth inequality gap between Black and white families, Black dads who are entrepreneurs must be part of the solution. There aren't a lot of resources for Black male entrepreneurs right now, so we are doing our part to change that this Father's Day.
Applications will close Thursday, June 17 at 11:59 pm EDT and the winners will be announced Friday, June 18th.
This is our fourth round of $1K grants and makes $40K we've given away since we started last July with a $50,000 seed grant from renowned venture capitalist, Brad Feld.

A collaboration to celebrate Black DadPreneurs
We are partnering with a member of the ParentPreneur Foundation community, Zahirah Truth, whose art celebrates Black fatherhood and for the next two weeks, she will donate 5% of all sales back to the ParentPreneur Foundation, so go ahead and get dad something he will love! Check out her Etsy store here -->.
Come for the community, stay for the community
So far, we paid for mental therapy for fifty people, shattering mental health stereotypes in the Black community. We also paid for virtual assistants for 10 members, provided virtual tutors for members' children during pandemic learning, and provided nearly fifty scholarships to Seth Godin's Marketing Seminar, and much more.
With nearly 1,400 members, our online community is 22X larger than it was in August 2020 when we started and is the heart of what we do. It's a place where we have each other's backs on this rocky journey to leave a legacy for our beautiful Black children.
How to apply
These $1,000 grants are intended to be a symbol of hope and inspiration. In order to be eligible for a grant, you need to join our free online community. Applications from our premium group members will receive priority consideration, however.
