GAIA grants are intended to provide support for education and values-based interventions related to reproductive health, while also fostering women’s birth choice autonomy. The hope is that funded projects may be a small part in worldwide efforts toward more moderate growth of planetary human population.
In 2022 the GAIA Grants Program expanded to 32 grants per year – 16 for projects in the Global South and 16 for Global North. There is a new IRS-approved non-profit GAIA Foundation that works collaboratively and supplements the funding available through our GAIA Initiative education charity in order to meet the $300,000 annual budget allocation.
For the most recent 2021 fiscal year, the total corporate expenditures were $226,156 of which 98.5% was expended for the approved grant awards. Typically incurred administrative expenses – staffing, leadership, committee service, office rent, etc. – are donated free-of-charge.
