Our Mission

The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation(WRF) is dedicated to improving the lives of all Arkansans in the interrelated areas of economic, racial, and social justice; economic development; and education. At WRF, we focus our efforts on people and communities that have the least wealth and opportunity. We use our resources to understand the problems contributing to poverty in Arkansas and to develop a long-term action plan to address the underlying issues. 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.
