Purpose and Activities

To ensure that family planning worldwide becomes acceptable, available, accessible, affordable, effective and safe. Funding is focused, nationally and internationally, on those organizations with innovative projects which will: 1) Protect and enhance people's ability to manage their reproductive health; 2) Carry out public policy analysis and/or public education in areas related to reproductive behavior and its social implications; and 3) Advance the knowledge and purposeful behavior of young people regarding sexuality within both a social and health context. The current major interests of the foundation are adolescent sexuality and the control of adolescent pregnancy, preservation of the freedom of choice of women to plan the spacing and number of children, how laws and regulations may control population growth, and pilot family planning programs in Third World countries. Grants range from $5,000 to $25,000.
