Purpose: 1DF created a grant specifically to support women content creators in March of 2018. This program started as a Twitch exclusive grant, but NOW has expanded to including creators on all platforms including Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and more. The 1,000 Dreams Fund BroadcastHER Grant provides financial assistance to eligible women to help with expenses such as travel to gaming conventions, educational conferences, hardware upgrades, and instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits. This grant is not intended for everyday expenses (e.g., utility bills, food costs) or costs related to medical care. Our grant was created to support women including cis women, trans women, trans feminine, and those who face disparities and discrimination in correlation to misogyny and identity.
Criteria: To be eligible for this grant you must be a content creator on a public platform such as Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, or TikTok.
