IWF Annual Luncheon

Since 1995, the IWF has hosted its largest fundraising event—the Annual Luncheon—each fall. The luncheon celebrates IWF’s work by announcing next year’s grantee partners and welcoming a keynote speaker that upholds the spirit of women working together to provide better opportunities for women and girls in Iowa and beyond.

Details of the 2023 Annual Luncheon are still being worked out and will be announced soon.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Corporate sponsorships of IWF’s annual events play a major role in the Foundation’s fundraising each year. 

IWF has shifted from event-specific sponsorships to annual sponsorships. This means our sponsoring partners receive recognition on all event materials, our website, and on social media for a full calendar year. In addition to this acknowledgement, sponsors receive varying levels of perks based on their sponsorship level.

2022 Luncheon Recap

IWF’s 26th Annual Luncheon was titled “Calling the Shots: Celebrating Iowa’s Unwavering Champion for Women and Girls” and was dedicated to Dr. Christine Grant, architect of title IX and a tireless trailblazer for women’s and girl’s athletics in Iowa and beyond. The event also honored IWF’s 25 years of grantmaking and the 50th Anniversary of Title IX.
