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.
