Support our HerRise Microgrant

The Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Women on the Rise NY, Inc. dba HerSuiteSpot has provided micro-grants to women of color entrepreneurs since 2017 as a way to assist them in starting or growing a business. Today it exist as emergency funding to assist these women small business owners and entrepreneurs in order to help them continue to function during this unexpected financial challenges due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

According to some experts, up to 90% of minority and women small business owners are predicted to be denied a PPP loan because financial institutions are favoring pre-existing customers when distributing the funds, therefore ignoring many minority and women entrepreneurs who may not have a bank loan.

“Roughly 95% of Black-owned businesses, 91% of Latino-owned businesses, 91% of Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander-owned businesses, and 75% of Asian-owned businesses stand close”.

The goal is to encourage women to follow their dreams and by supporting the economic success of women you are making it possible for for them to achieve their goals as entrepreneurs.

The Yva Jourdan Foundation Inc.’s (TYJF) mission is to strengthen the leadership, power, and voices of women and children through our educational programs.

The Yva Jourdan Foundation, Inc. is a public non-profit charitable organization serving to women and children in the New York City and Long Island area.  We educate young girls about entrepreneurship, provide women small business owners an opportunity to gain access to information to grow a small business and our reading program allows our volunteers to go into schools or learning facilities where inclusion classrooms are found to read storybooks on special needs acceptance. In collaboration with corporations and other organizations dedicated to empowering women and children, TYJF seeks to strengthen communities with our programs.

Our hope is that through this support, families will be connected to the resources in their communities to achieve and maintain a higher quality of life.
