We aspire for people in all 50 states to have access to high quality, affordable abortion and contraceptive care.
The ability to choose whether and when to have a child, to give birth safely, and to raise children in a supportive environment is essential to living a healthy, empowered life and foundational to a just and equitable society. Yet today, too many people of reproductive age (15-44) live in a state that limit or restrict access to reproductive care, including abortion.
Our grantmaking focuses on two urgent efforts: supporting state level efforts to preserve reproductive health and rights, including in Louisiana and Mississippi, and funding innovations to expand access to abortion and contraceptive services.
Our funding will support state level efforts that protect, regain, and expand access to abortion and contraception. As part of our state-based strategy, we will continue our decade long investments in reproductive health and justice organizations in Louisiana and Mississippi.
In addition to our work in the states, we will also build on our long track record of investments in mission-driven reproductive health companies and initiatives to advance safe, affordable contraceptives and medication abortion that have the potential for outsized impact on millions of people’s lives.
