The mission of the Iowa Women’s Foundation is to improve the lives of Iowa’s women and girls.


With this mission as our guidepost, IWF annually makes grants available to organizations whose work aligns with this goal. With a focus on economic self-sufficiency for Iowa’s women and girls, we seek grant applications from organizations in Iowa addressing barriers to economic self-sufficiency of women and girls: employment, childcare, housing, education/training, transportation, and mentorship.


We need to do whatever we can to support and empower women seeking to make real change in our world.

Applications are welcome from organizations with 501(c)(3) status and other grassroots organizations serving Iowa’s women and girls.
