April 17, 2023

The Count the Kicks Changemakers Luncheon will be held on Monday, April 17, 2023. Formerly known as the Every Woman Counts Luncheon, our annual fundraising event exists to make stillbirth a maternal health tragedy of the past and supports our work to eliminate the racial disparities that persist in birth outcomes.

Our annual fundraiser will remain the same uplifting and inspirational luncheon you have come to expect. The Changemakers Luncheon is the most sought-after Spring event in Central Iowa, and our attendees often say it is the best 90 minutes of their week. All proceeds benefit our mission to educate and empower expectant parents about the importance of kick counting in the third trimester of pregnancy. 

Become a Changemakers Luncheon Sponsor

Our event attendees are thinkers, innovators, cultural leaders, investors, connectors, and social pioneers. On Monday, April 17, 2023, more than 1,100 people will gather in the Iowa Events Center ballroom and hundreds more will join us at watch parties across the U.S. Today we invite you to consider becoming a Changemakers Luncheon sponsor.

The impact you can have on our work as a luncheon sponsor is huge. With the help of generous sponsors from this year’s event, we received stories from eight women in August alone saying our program helped get their baby here safely.

We have identified opportunities to highlight YOUR WORK in our community to our event guests before, during and after the Changemakers Luncheon. Click on the button below for more information on what is being planned for our sponsors at various giving levels.
