In the summer of 2013, I had the opportunity to spend two months with the Moose Cree First Nations in Moose Factory, Ontario. The community taught me so much and my life changed as a result. I always wanted to give back, and as nomz grows, so will this grant.
The grant is open to both women and men. To apply, send an email with information about you, your business idea, and how you plan to use the funds to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “nomz grant” by September 8th, 2021. If you applied last year, you can apply again this year. All applications will be properly vetted through a selection committee with individuals from the Indigenous community.
Today and beyond, we encourage all Canadians to learn more about the history, heritage and contribution of Indigenous peoples.
Thank you to all who applied, and thank you to Cindy, Florence and Allen for all your time vetting through these thoughtful and inspiring applications.
We've always wanted to give back, and this year, we are so happy to announce that nomz will be providing a $5,000 grant for an Indigenous woman to pursue her dreams in starting her own business, or to help grow a budding business, and share the lessons we've learned.
To apply, please send an email with information about you and your business (or business idea) to email@example.com with the subject line "nomz grant" before September 8th, 2020. The recipient of the grant will be announced on September 15th, 2020.
