The Allor Foundation Accepting Applications for Reproductive Health Education.
The Anna Allor Burdick (ALB) 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 Foundation 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. 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.
