Congratulations to Abby Roden and Rachel Gladstone, remarkable young women leaders who were are recognized with the Shapiro-McCormick Young Woman Leader Award for advocating for girls within their schools and communities and making a difference in the lives of young women through philanthropy, advocacy and other community service efforts.  

Celebrate 25 years of Funding Women Forward at our annual Women Achievers Breakfast taking place on November 30 at Crest Hollow Country Club. Each year since 1995, WFLI has hosted a committed, motivated, inspired audience of nearly 700 influential Long Islanders as we honor remarkable Long Island Women and Young Women Achievers who are making a difference in our local communities and beyond.  


Calling all women! Nominate a stand up guy today!  As part of our 25th anniversary celebration, WFLI is looking for 25 "Stand Up Guys" – family members, bosses, co-workers, neighbors, teachers, coaches, clergy, volunteers, friends – who have made a difference in the lives of girls and women and helped them reach their potential at home, at school, at work or in their community.  Due September 16!
