THE GRANT LADY
New York, NY,
USA United States of America
Since 1983, Shakurra Amatulla, as The Grant Lady, has been
demonstrating to women and nonprofit organizations, creative ways to
financial self-empowerment through her national grants newsletter, For
Women Newsletter (FUWN). Shakurra continues the tradition when she
moved FUWN onto the Internet at http://www.grantlady.com.
Shakurra's love for grants research began in the 1980s when she, as a
single mother of four children, sought grants to help pay for a huge gas
found not only a writers' group who assisted her with the bill, but also hundreds of other grants virtually ignored by the general public.
To me, a grant equals an opportunity, says Shakurra, a playwright and performing artist who operates For Us Publications from her New York
office. A grant can be an opportunity to jump-start a woman's career,
subsidize her own business, provide economic relief for a struggling
nonprofit organization, or just another way to raise one's self-esteem.
The Grant Lady diligently researches both the national and
grant vastland. In past issues she has highlighted not only grants
artist, educational grants and the like, but also grants for older
cultural grants (such as for Irish-Americans, African-Americans, Asians,
etc.), as well as the obscure grants, such as the ones for thoroughbred
bowlers, psychics . . . even pork lovers! Grants range from $50 to
Shakurra takes pains to locate grants which specifically meet her
needs. People are constantly shocked and amazed about the diverse
grants I uncover, says Shakurra. Which goes to prove that for every
goal you may have, there's either a grant or a number of funding
there for you to realize those dreams. Shakurra also stresses that her
not limited to just women. I also feature general grants which can be
by anyone, says the proud grandmother of four grandsons.
