Our Mission


The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation (WRF)

...is dedicated to improving the lives of Arkansans in three inter-related areas: education, economic development, and economic, racial, and social justice. Our Moving the Needle strategy is based on the belief that all Arkansans fare better when no one is left behind and when everyone shares in economic progress, quality education, and general community well-being.
