Foundations provide grants, encourage research, and act as a convener around their mission. The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas does so with the purpose of increasing the economic viability of women and girls in Arkansas.


WFA encourages and supports research around the status of women and girls in Arkansas in order to identify areas of need as well as progress or regression made over time. See research.
