What if we eliminated the barriers to finding affordable, accessible, quality childcare? Iowa Women's Foundation explores how the issue impacts Iowa's women, workforce and our communities. Watch their Building Foundations video here or click the picture below.

"The Iowa Women’s Foundation (IWF) is unlike many nonprofit organizations. With an overarching focus on improving the lives of women and girls in Iowa, we support research to identify important issues and solutions, so that we can invest wisely to create pathways to their economic success.

We advocate for women and girls because they need a stronger voice.

As part of our overall mission, IWF uses its research and its status as a voice of Iowa’s women and girls to drive change and improve lives.

There are many strategies for achieving systemic change: community development, media outreach, public education, and grantmaking. Our grantmaking cycles have targeted the issue of self-sufficiency, and all of IWF’s actions and funding are directed at promotion of this change." --Iowa Women's Foundation
