  • News: LI Fund for Women and Girls: Helping Women Achieve Against the Odds

    The Long Island Fund for Women and Girls is a nonprofit organization in Bethpage that funds organizations run by women and that serves women on Long Island. The organization was established in 1991. It began with a small group of women from Nassau and Suffolk County meeting over brown-bagged lunches to discuss pressing issues affecting women and girls on Long Island. One major issue discussed was the cutting of women's programs due to lack of funding. On the LIFWG website it states, Úquot;78 percent of the nation's poor are women and their children, but less than 6 cents of every dollar donated by organized philanthropy goes to programs that specifically address the needs of women and girls.Úquot; This fact ultimately led to the establishment of the LIFWG, which this year provided $150,000 in grant money toward women's programs.
