Lifting Up Our Communities
Kroger has a long history of bringing help and hope to the communities we serve. Since our earliest days, the Kroger Family of Companies has taken care of our neighbors and each other.
When founder Barney Kroger opened his doors to give day-old bread to hungry residents, Kroger’s spirit of giving began. Nearly 135 years later, Kroger is still committed to sharing the fruits of our labor in our communities. We provide food and nourishment to help people live their best lives.

We focus on supporting our communities’ needs today and finding innovative solutions to help end hunger tomorrow. Working together, we will achieve meaningful change that transforms our communities.

David and Lucile Packard Foundation
Every woman and girl—no matter where she lives in the world—has the right to live with dignity and have a voice in decisions that affect her life.
The Reproductive Health program is committed to promoting reproductive health and rights, with a focus on high quality information and services. We place a special emphasis on engaging and serving youth, and believe that young people have the best potential for building and sustaining a movement of change.
We aim to:
- Improve the quality of comprehensive sexuality education, voluntary contraception, and abortion care.
- Strengthen service delivery, build leadership and advocacy capacity, and shift social and cultural norms to allow women and youth to make their own reproductive health care decisions.
- Forge partnerships with global research and advocacy organizations, especially networks led by youth, and to create positive and effective messages about reproductive health and rights at the regional and global levels.
- We work with reproductive health advocates, researchers, and providers to advance quality sexual and reproductive health information, services, and rights.

The Oak Hill Fund
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 the growing number of attacks on women's rights, shifts in the field, and limited grant dollars, The Oak Hill Fund Board decided in 2016 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.
Mission and Purpose
The Anna Lalor Burdick Program funds initiatives that bring women information and access to reproductive health care, contraception, and pregnancy termination in order to help broaden and enhance their options in life.
The Anna Lalor Burdick (ALB) Program supports programs that offer sexual and reproductive health education to women. It is interested in programs serving 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.
- 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
Funding Availability and Duration
The ALB Program awards a small number of grants in the range of $10,000 to $35,000, with an average grant size between $15,000 and $25,000.
Grants are awarded for one year. On rare occasions, trustees invite follow-up work to a project that has shown outstanding results or promise during its first year.
