The Leland Fikes Foundation funds general operations, programs and direct services, advocacy, capital, and capacity building in alignment with our four strategic priorities:
• Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice:
We support a range of strategies to improve access to reproductive healthcare, including contraception and abortion, at the national and state level. This includes advocacy, litigation, and access to healthcare services.
• Progressive Values:
We seek to strengthen a free, inclusive, and transparent democracy. This work includes support for public policy, advocacy, litigation, civic engagement, and expanding voting access.
• Dallas-Area Human Services:
We support our local community though a variety of social service organizations addressing community needs such as housing, food, employment, and physical and mental health.
