Anna Lalor Burdick Program Offers Support for Human Reproduction Education

An initiative of the Lalor Foundation, the Anna Lalor Burdick Program seeks to educate young women about human 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 reproductive health, including the subjects of contraception and pregnancy termination, and as such may be particularly lacking options in their lives.

The funding program emphasizes support for projects that demonstrate realistic plans to achieve greater financial self-sufficiency; support for new or smaller organizations, including grassroots efforts; support for collaborative efforts among nonprofit organizations; and support for new ideas, initiatives, and demonstration projects that may be successfully replicated or provide multiple benefits. The program has no geographic limits.

The program annually awards a small number of grants in the range of $10,000 to $50,000 each. Grants are generally awarded for one year only.

Eligible U.S. 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. Applicants not located in the U.S. and not already classified by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service should contact the foundation office for further information.

Concept papers are accepted twice a year. For the November 1 deadline, concept papers may be submitted between September 1 and November 1. For the May 15 deadline, concept papers may be submitted between March 15 and May 15.

Complete program guidelines are available at the Lalor Foundation Web site.

    Hello – Just wondering if the Anna Lalor Burdick Foundation is still accepting applications for the reproductive education grants for young women? Due November 1st?

    Thank you very much,
    Sharon


    • Dear Sharon,

      My apologies for not getting back to you earlier–I just moved from the city of San Jose, Costa Rica, to a remote indigenous island in Panama and therefore, I am just getting around to all my messages. I sincerely hope you went ahead and sent in an application to the Anna Lalor Burdick Foundation. Yes, the application deadline is a firm NOV 1–needs to be dated no later than NOV 1. I hope your application is successful–please let me know if there are any developments.
