The Society of Family Planning (SFP) advances science in family planning, including contraception and abortion, by funding research and promoting the expansion and dissemination of family planning knowledge. SFP also seeks to cultivate a collaborative and supportive environment to foster scholarly activity and leadership in the areas of reproductive health and family planning.


The SFP Research Fund has awarded nearly $3.5 million in our two competitive grant funding cycles of 2015. The awards are now posted on our grant awards page. Still remaining is our large multisite award, which we will announce shortly. Congratulations to all awardees!

We have also just posted our 2014 annual report. 2014 was a year rich in both activity and accomplishments, and we hope you will take a few minutes to review the report.
