Anna Lalor Burdick Program: Empowering Young Women through Education in United States

Deadline: 1 November 2017

The Lalor Foundation is inviting applicants for its Anna Lalor Burdick Program to empower young women through education about healthy reproduction in order to broaden and enhance their options in life.

The program focuses particularly on young women who have inadequate access to information regarding sexual and reproductive health, including comprehensive and unbiased information on contraception and pregnancy termination.

Funding Information and Duration

  • The ALB Program awards a small number of grants in the range of $10,000 to $35,000, with an average grant size between $15,000 and $25,000.
  • Grants are awarded for one year. On rare occasions, trustees invite follow-up work to a project that has shown outstanding results or promise during its first year.

Funding Interests

The Anna Lalor Burdick (ALB) Program supports programs that offer sexual and reproductive health education to young women. It is interested in programs serving young 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. 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

Programs that incorporate advocacy or policy change, consistent with IRS 501(c)(3) status, are of particular interest.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code and defined as “not a private foundation” under section 509(a) of the Code.
  • While projects may take place outside the U.S., only organizations based in the United States are eligible.
