Volunteer Opportunities

Although, we are headquartered in Coralville, the Iowa Women’s Foundation is a statewide women’s foundation working to improve the lives of ALL of Iowa’s women and girl’s through our statewide network of regional teams.

Chicks for Change – Cedar Valley: This dedicated group of supporters in the Cedar Valley was founded over a decade ago by residents of the area who were passionate about the work of the Iowa Women’s Foundation.  Together, the group members help increase awareness about IWF’s work and build its philanthropy so ALL of Iowa’s women and girls can be economically successful.

Chicks for Change – Des Moines: Building on the success of Chicks for Change, IWF is launching additional local teams.  In its third year, the Des Moines team is instrumental in increasing awareness about IWF’s work and building its philanthropy so ALL of Iowa’s women and girls can be economically successful.

If you are interested in organizing a local team in your area, please contact us at info@iawf.org
