The Foundation was established by the former Women's National Press Club which was founded in the early 1900's to ensure that women had a voice in the press. Today, the Foundation continues the work of these pioneers by sponsoring programs and events that encourage equality and diversity in the newsroom. One current program, the WPCF Internship Partnership, provides funds so area newsrooms can pay student interns while they gain valuable experience covering Congress.
The Annual Congressional Dinner, which brings together Washington's media and political worlds for a memorable evening each winters, supports this and other Foundation programs. Our sponsors who support the Internship Partnership as well as other WPCF initiatives are recognized at this dinner.
