Grantee Spotlight: Planned Parenthood

The 2021 George Family Foundation Annual Report is available now! This spotlight is one of a handful of short features celebrating the extraordinary work the Foundation’s grantees are accomplishing.

Planned Parenthood envisions communities where sexual and reproductive rights are basic human rights and where every person has the opportunity to lead a healthy, authentic, and thriving life. They know that to improve health outcomes and disrupt disparities, Planned Parenthood must care for their constituents’ whole selves.

“The support of the George Family Foundation has been vital to our ability to fulfill our mission of creating healthier communities by providing comprehensive reproductive and related healthcare services, delivering science-based education programs, and serving as a strong advocate for reproductive justice in Texas.” — Ken Lambrecht, President & CEO, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas

“Support from the George Family Foundation helps ensure that young people have access to the information they need to empower themselves. When young people know how to avoid pregnancy until they are ready to parent, reduce risks of STIs, and maintain healthy relationships, they are better able to complete their education, take advantage of career opportunities, and live their most authentic lives. The George Family Foundation is a critical partner in helping Planned Parenthood provide a safety net of compassionate and comprehensive reproductive health resources to all who need it, no matter what.” — Sarah Stoesz, President & CEO, Planned Parenthood North Central States
