The Lalor Foundation
The Anna Lalor Burdick Program, a Foundation initiative, seeks to educate young women about human 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 reproductive health, including the subjects of contraception and pregnancy termination and as such may be particularly lacking options in their lives. The Programís selection criteria emphasizes support for one-time projects, ongoing projects, new projects, and initiatives that demonstrate realistic plans to achieve greater financial self-sufficiency. The Program is also interested in supporting new or smaller organizations, including grassroots efforts, where funding will increase public visibility, improve standing with funders, facilitate overall organizational development, or for well-defined projects of larger organizations, add a new dimension or capability to operations. The Program also supports collaborative efforts among nonprofits and those organizations that can demonstrate a proven ability to reach out to, include, and involve young women with inadequate access to information regarding reproductive health. Grants have been awarded for new ideas, initiatives, and demonstration projects, which, if proven effective, may be successfully replicated or provide multiple benefits. Additional information is available on the Web site.
