Each year, the CFWL chooses different Central Florida-based nonprofits on which to focus. Along with fundraising efforts on behalf of the chosen organizations, League members interact with those charities to aid individuals and groups in need of assistance.

Each year, CFWL members submit charity recommendations to our Charitable Granting Committee. Once vetted, the committee visits the selected charities to learn more about their mission and needs. Due to the amazing synergy of CFWL and its members, we have awarded more than 105 grants totaling over $2.5 million.

The 2022-2023 grant recipients included:

The Greatest Investment Girls Empowerment – $30,000

The Greatest Investment (“TGI”) Girls Empowerment Program was created in April 2010 to empower the next generation of female leaders by challenging female professionals, business owners, community leaders and volunteers to take an active role in shaping the life of a future female leader.

Grace Medical – $20,000

The Mission of Grace Medical is to provide health care to those in Orange County who need it the most – low income and uninsured. More than 185,000 people in Orange County are uninsured and have no access to ongoing care due to insurance status and cost barriers. Grace Medical Home is here to change that.

Shepherd’s Hope – $15,000

Shepherd’s Hope contributes directly to Central Florida’s healthcare economy by mitigating the financial impact to hospitals and healthcare providers for the services they provide to uninsured patients.

A Gift for Music – $10,000

Their mission is to empower Orlando’s under-resourced youth to envision a positive future for themselves and discover their own creativity through music and music education.
