Kitty Fund:
Helping Mom-Preneurs
Grow Their Businesses.

Founders First CDC is providing $1 million in various grants to help diverse businesses scale.


We are investing in 50 Moms nationwide.

The Kitty Fund makes small micro investments in Moms who are running employer-based small businesses with two or more employees. The award was created in honor of Mother’s Day and Founder’s First CEO Kim Folsom‘s mother, Catherine “Kitty” Abrams Tadlock Webster, who passed away in March of 2020.

In 2020, the fund made its first investments of $13K in 50 Moms running small businesses nationwide. In 2021, the amount increased from $250 to $500 for the 50 recipients.

For 2022, a total of $25,000 will be awarded as $500 grants to 50 businesses. Details and qualifications below:

The application deadline is April 11, 2022.  @5:00PM PST
