In light of Covid-19, the work of the Iowa Women’s Foundation is even more important during this time of uncertainty, especially with the child care initiative we have been working on for two years. Over 30 communities have joined efforts and are working together with local businesses, elected officials, community members and providers to increase the availability of affordable, quality child care slots. The Ovation Fundraiser is critical to this work of the Foundation and to our state.

With this, we are extending the deadline date to submit materials for Ovation. If you have already sent photos and text, thank you! Ideally we would like to have everything submitted as soon as possible, but we know there are other things top of mind today. Therefore, the final deadline is now Friday, April 24th.

We are rescheduling Ovation Unveiling events for early summer in hopes that the virus is under control and we are somewhat back to normal. Please know that we have your best interests at heart and as things are changing day-by-day, hour-by-hour we will err on the side of caution. Stay tuned for further details.

If you have any questions at this time, don’t hesitate to let us know. This historical account of Iowa women and girls holds a special place in history and in turn is providing opportunities for women and girls statewide. Thank you! We are incredibly appreciative of all of the work you are doing to help us create the next fabulous edition of Ovation!
On behalf of all of us at the Iowa Women’s Foundation – Be well!
