About the Power of the Purse
In 1998, the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas grant-making fund was launched at a luncheon honoring Arkansas Business Publishing Group’s Top 100 Women. WFA held its first Power of the Purse luncheon in 1999 to announce the grants made possible with the generous gifts of its founders. WFA now holds this signature fundraising event each fall to honor accomplished women, announce the year’s grant recipients and highlight WFA programs.
