Grants ranging from $10,000 to $35,000 to USA nonprofit organizations to empower young women by providing healthy reproductive education. Emphasis is placed on programs serving women who lack access to unbiased information regarding reproductive health and their options in life.

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.

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.

Estimated Size of Grant:

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.

Term of Contract:

Grants are awarded for one year only. Under special circumstances, renewals are considered, such as for projects which clearly require more than one year of support for effective implementation, or for projects which demonstrate outstanding results or promise during the first year.

Applicants must re-apply through the competitive grants process. The foundation does not make multiyear grants.

Additional 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.

The ALB Program typically does not support general operations, ongoing programs, or existing staff positions.

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.

Grants are never made:
- To individuals, or for individual research projects and scholarships
- For endowment or major capital support
- To crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs)
- For abstinence-only programs, or programs that fail to offer unbiased information on all options

Pre-Application Information:

The first step in applying for a grant is to submit a concept paper online.

Concept Paper Deadlines:
