Façonnable, in partnership with Vogue magazine, celebrated their support for 100 Women in Hedge Funds by donating a portion of their proceeds from every purchase made on men's and women's clothing and accessories from November 17 through 30, 2005 to the National Ovarian Early Detection Program at NYU Cancer Center.
From November 9 through 19, 2005, Façonnable's flagship store (Fifth Avenue and 51st Street) was decorated in honor of 100 Women in Hedge Funds.
100 Women in Hedge Funds Foundation was welcomed for inclusion in the Sir Harold Acton Society of New York University. The Society honors donors who have made gifts of $1 million to the University. A formal presentation took place in January 2007 and the Foundation was included on the Sir Harold Acton Society plaque which is displayed year-round on campus in the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for University Life.
