The Brush Foundation Board of Managers believes that there are some organizations working in reproductive health advocacy, service delivery and education that “if they didn’t exist, we would have to invent them.” Many of these organizations have been funded repeatedly through our competitive, project-specific grant process. We have created a category of funding called “Core Grants”, which provide general operating support with some certainty (three years) and alleviates the need to prepare project-specific grant applications each year. Current Core Grant recipients include the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland, Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio, the Guttmacher Institute, Pathfinder International, NFPRHA, Advocates for Youth and the Center for Adolescent Health and the Law.

The Brush Foundation takes great pride in supporting an annual fellowship that has, for more than a decade, supported the professional education of a group of outstanding students who are now making what we regard as significant contributions to the field. Currently the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University is the Brush Foundation’s partner university for a graduate fellowship focused on reproductive health and policy.
