About Central Florida Women's League

Founded over 26 years ago, The Central Florida Women’s League is a group of 125+ women dedicated to Community, Charity and Culture combined. We are proud of our members and our collective accomplishments to help those less fortunate in our community as well as assist aspiring young women in their pursuit of a higher education.

CFWL is entirely a volunteer organization. It is only through the tremendous effort and generosity of our league members, patron sponsors, benefactors and corporate sponsors that we have been able to raise and contribute over 2 million dollars to students and local charities.

Where Commitment to Community, Charity, Caring, and Culture Combine.

Supported Charities

Each year the Central Florida Women's League chooses different Orlando-based charities on which to focus. Along with fundraising efforts on behalf of the chosen charities, League members interact with those charities to aid individuals and other community groups in need of assistance. Due to the amazing synergy of the League and its members, we have contributed approximately $2,000,000 to various charities.

Scholarships Funding

Annually, Central Florida Women's League Foundation awards up to 10 young women with scholarship funding to assist with their college tuition expenses. Periodically, Central Florida Women's League Foundation also selects one young man as the recipient of the George Fortier Memorial Scholarship. Student eligibility is determined based upon academic achievement and promise, financial need, and community involvement.

2016 Scholarship Luncheon

A special presentation of scholarship awards to students from four local high schools was held at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. The Central Florida Women’s League Foundation has helped make college possible for students since 1998. This year more than forty students applied. Following a rigorous selection process, candidates were interviewed and 10 girls were selected. One young man was also awarded the George Fortier Scholarship. The students must demonstrate academic achievement and promise, financial need and community involvement.

Charitable Granting Luncheon & Check Presentations

Representatives from charities chosen for the 2016 CFWL Foundation grants made presentations at the annual member luncheon. Over the next few months check presentations were made at the organization offices. Each year, CFWL’s charitable granting committee and league members identify local charities that deserve to benefit from our financial assistance for a specific project. From an initial list of up to 20 different organizations, each is carefully vetted. A list of finalists is composed and each of those groups has an onsite visit by committee members. Then the final recipients are selected for the grants from the Central Florida Women’s League Foundation. Since the Foundation’s inception, it has awarded more than $2,000,000 to local nonprofits.
