Retirement Grant


Grant Amount: $2,500

Did you know that 34% of entrepreneurs have no retirement savings plan for themselves? According to SCORE, small business owners cited the following reasons for not having a retirement savings plan: don’t make enough profit, used money to start their business, plan to sell their business for retirement fund, don’t see a need to save or don’t plan on retiring.

With uncertainty around social security, a possible recession, and improved access to healthcare, it is more important than ever to save for retirement. Thanks to the support of Alliant the Enthuse Foundation Retirement Grant will provide a woman entrepreneur with funding specifically for her retirement savings.

One woman entrepreneur will receive $2,500 to be used towards retirement.
