The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation (WRF) "seeds efforts to improve the quality of life for all Arkansans and to promote systemic change. In committing itself to this mission, WRF continues the progressive, cutting-edge, visionary work that Governor Rockefeller undertook in his political life and philanthropy from 1954 until his death in 1973.

"The Foundation's three goals — education; economic development; and economic, racial and social justice — are highly interdependent." [1]
