Overview

The Anna Lalor Burdick Program funds initiatives that bring women information and access to reproductive health care, contraception, and pregnancy termination in order to help broaden and enhance their options in life. Due to the increase in restrictions for women living in places where the right to choose has been or threatens to be abolished, we are focusing our efforts on supporting organizations that value reproductive rights and help women gain access to contraception and abortions.

The Anna Lalor Burdick (ALB) Program supports programs that offer sexual and reproductive health education to women. It is interested in programs serving women who are disadvantaged by poverty, discrimination, geographic isolation, lack of comprehensive sex education, hostile public policy, or other factors leading to inadequate sexual and reproductive health. The ALB Program is particularly interested in supporting new programs or initiatives, or innovations in successful programs. Programs at new or small organizations, including those with a grassroots base, that are capable of delivering excellent services will also be considered.

Programs should:

  • have a comprehensive approach to SRH education that includes unbiased information on all options
  • include novel ideas or innovative methods of delivering information
  • define clear goals and intended outcomes as well as a feasible plan to assess impact and success
  • be exemplars for replication if successful
  • be economically sustainable if successful
