The mission of the Iowa Women's Foundation is to improve the lives of girls and women through the power of philanthropy, advocacy and collaboration. Our vision is for every woman and girl in Iowa to have a full range of choices to attain her dreams, thus improving the standard of living of all Iowans. All applications for IWF funding must be specifically for women and/or girls in Iowa. IWF seeks projects that go beyond the provision of direct services and address the underlying social issues that perpetuate inequality, abuse and poverty.
