Army Women's Foundation

Mission

The U.S. Army Women’s Foundation is the premier center for educational excellence, the national network for today’s Army women and a dynamic advocate for telling the history of Army women.

The U.S. Army Women’s Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Fort Lee, Virginia. The mission of the Army Women’s Foundation is to promote public interest in the Army and recognize and honor the service of all Army women through programs, research and scholarships.

Annual Summit

Each year, in Washington, D.C., the Army Women’s Foundation brings together experts on defense, economic, political, health and social issues that effect soldiers, particularly women soldiers.

We’ve examined and celebrated the changing military missions and roles of Army women, the challenges they face transitioning back to civilian life, and the resiliency they demonstrate in handling both.

We look forward to continuing the dialog necessary for supporting strong soldiers.
