Overview:

Since 2002, The Oak Hill Fund has focused on reproductive health and rights. Despite many setbacks, the past 14 years have seen significant victories such as the legalization of over-the-counter emergency contraception, expansion of public school comprehensive sex education curricula, and wider use of long acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs). Given growing attacks on women's rights, shifts in the field, and limited grant dollars, The Oak Hill Fund Board decided to focus this program on two areas, and thus, while extremely important, comprehensive sex-education programs will no longer be supported. 

Expanding, defending, and improving reproductive health, rights, and justice help build strong communities. State-level attacks on reproductive rights have increased in the last decade while the need for affordable and accessible reproductive healthcare has only gone up. The Oak Hill Fund seeks project specific proposals to: 

  • Provide, promote, or defend access to safe, affordable reproductive healthcare and services. 
  • Educate policymakers and the public on the importance of reproductive health, rights, and justice to women and families.
