Grants are one tool in the toolbox. There are many others. The most useful one is partnerships. The Foundation loves learning about people and organizations that are working toward the same goals that Governor Rockefeller envisioned. If you’re interested in working with us toward an equitable Arkansas, we ask that you first review the summary of our strategic direction before proceeding.

The Vision: The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation affirms the legacy of our founder who envisioned a thriving and prosperous Arkansas that benefits all Arkansans.

We’re serious about equity.


The Mission: To relentlessly pursue economic, educational, social, ethnic, and racial equity for all Arkansans.

We're committed to our vision.


WRF envisions an equitable Arkansas in which all Arkansans have jobs that pay a livable wage, access to quality education, and everyone has equal opportunity to thrive and prosper. By all Arkansans, we mean everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, immigration status, language, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, geographic location, education, or income.
