Women's Giving Circles

At ForWard, AHLEF launched Women’s Giving Circles to identify and recruit female leaders in the industry to tap into their networks and raise critical funds in support of the Foundation.

Invest in the Next Generation of Women in Hospitality

We must stock our talent pool constantly. Funds donated provide ongoing support for AHLEF and its programs, supporting students who've chosen to pursue a hospitality career, and ensuring the future health of the industry. All contributions are tax-deductible and there are several ways that you can lend your support.
