The Lalor Foundation: Inviting U.S. Organizations to Advance Research and Innovation in Reproductive Health

Deadline: 1 May 2017

Applications are currently open for the Anna Lalor Burdick Program seeking 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.

Areas of Interest

  • 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.
  • 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.

Funding Availability 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.

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.
  • 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.
  • Programs that focus exclusively on the following are generally not considered:
    • HIV/HPV/sexually transmitted disease prevention
    • one-time direct supply costs (e.g. distribution of menstrual products, LARCs, or contraception)
    • menstrual health or hygiene
    • maternal health, infant health, or postpartum issues
    • advocacy on behalf of teen parents
  • However, programs that incorporate these issues as part of a comprehensive strategy for enhancing young women’s reproductive freedom and options will be reviewed, on a case-by-case basis.
