Anna Lalor Burdick Program
The Anna Lalor Burdick Program seeks 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.
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.
The ALB Program typically does not support general operations, ongoing programs, or existing staff positions.
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.
Deadlines for concept papers: May 1; Nov. 1
