IWF hosted the 25th Annual Luncheon on October 7th at the Hyatt Regency Coralville. 360 attendees socially distanced in the main ballroom and 80 more joined virtually to share our individual “Why’s”, and why the work of the Foundation is important to create impact across the state, why grantee partners are critical to the success of Iowa’s women and girls, and why we all can support and participate in the work that helps Iowa’s women achieve economic stability and success.

Keynote Speaker Chris Grumm spoke about the “Why” of women’s funds and why we need to support women and girls to be economically self-sufficient. IWF Founder Stephanie Clohesy shared “Why” this work is significant in Iowa and encouraged all to shake a bit when giving a donation to the work in support of the WHY.

Our sincere thanks to Jeremy James and Lois James of James Investment Group! They were the Luncheon Match Sponsor. Due to the generosity of attendees, we met the match! Your support provides the foundation with the “Why” IWF is able to do what it does.

Thank you to all sponsors, table hosts, attendees, and volunteers for sharing time, talent, expertise, and resources for the work of the Foundation. You are key to the “Why”!
