Women's Reproductive Health and Rights Program
Since 2002, The Oak Hill Fund has focused on reproductive health and rights. Despite many setbacks, the past 16 years have seen significant victories such as the legalization of over-the-counter emergency contraception, expansion of public school comprehensive sex education curricula, and wider use of long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). Given the growing number of attacks on women's rights, shifts in the field, and limited grant dollars, The Oak Hill Fund Board decided in 2016 to focus this program on two areas, and thus, while extremely important, comprehensive sex-education programs will no longer be supported.
Expanding, defending and improving reproductive health, rights and justice help build strong communities. State-level attacks on reproductive rights have increased in the last decade while the need for affordable and accessible reproductive healthcare has only gone up. The Oak Hill Fund seeks project specific proposals to:
- Provide, promote or defend access to safe, affordable reproductive healthcare and services.
- Educate policymakers and the public on the importance of reproductive health, rights and justice to women and families.

The Oak Hill Fund only awards grants to organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Grants for this program are limited to the southeastern United States.
