The go-to funding resource for diverse, early-stage entrepreneurs.

Caress can help grow your dream! Whether you have a small business or are jumpstarting your side hustle, Caress wants to provide you with the education, tools, and resources to take your dreams to the next level. Through the Caress Dreams to Reality Fund, 150 diverse founders will receive $2,500 in grants and coaching scholarships to execute successful crowdfunding campaigns.
Caress believes that moments of self-care are so important for women to feel truly pampered, centered, and connected with themselves. It's in these moments of immersing your senses that creativity flourishes-and Caress believes that no grant idea should go down the drain! So, with Caress Dreams to Reality Fund, we will be awarding 150 diverse founders with $1,500 worth of hands-on, 1:1 intensive coaching, and $1,000 grant to execute successful fundraising campaigns.
Since our launch earlier this year, we've been hard at work building the IFundWomen of Color community from the ground up, and the response has been incredible. The women in our community are reimagining how we build and use retail spaces, carving out space for Black Women in wellness, tackling food deserts in Brooklyn, and more. You want to get in on this.
