The cause lives on

During the run of "Hart to Hart" in 1981, Powers' romantic partner William Holden died at 63. The two had met in 1972 and became close despite Holden being a quarter-century her senior (Powers was married to actor Gary Lockwood from 1966 to 1972). Powers and Holden took numerous trips to Africa and shared a passion for wildlife conservation. Holden left Powers $250,000, and she used the funds to start the William Holden Wildlife Foundation. Powers serves as president of the charity, which established a wildlife education center in Kenya.
