BMO in collaboration with Deloitte has launched the BMO Celebrating Women Grant Program, to help many US-based women-owned business ventures. 

The grant’s purpose is to Boldly Grow the Good in business and life. BMO invites women business owners to apply for one of its 15 grants by sharing their business growth plan that satisfies either one of these requirements- new products and services, expanding to new markets, or hiring plans. Each grant recipient will be awarded $10,000, receive support from a BMO business advisor, and have access to additional resources to support their business’ financial progress. This includes BMO for Women workshops, seminars and events, and potential membership in select organizations and advisory boards.

“Each year, the BMO Celebrating Women Grant Program helps inspire women-led businesses to thrive in their communities and make progress,” said Erminia (Ernie) Johannson, Group Head, North American Personal and Business Banking. “By breaking down traditional barriers to funding for women entrepreneurs, the grant program aligns with BMO’s Zero Barriers to Inclusion strategy. Increasing access to capital through lending, investing, and giving in our local communities creates a more vibrant economy, a sustainable future, and a more inclusive society.”

“Deloitte is proud to continue our collaboration with BMO and further our support for women-led businesses,” said Kathy Scherer, Vice Chair and Chicago Managing Partner, Deloitte LLP. “We hope these grants give women leaders from all backgrounds the support they need to help grow their businesses and give a boost to the communities where they operate. We look forward to seeing the progress the grant recipients achieve with this added support.”

The link for the application for the grant is here and is valid from April 30th to May 14th.
