This rating was published 06/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Founded in 1996, Power to Decide believes that when people have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child, they have more opportunity to achieve the futures they want. We work to ensure that all young people-no matter who they are, where they live, or what their economic status might be-have the power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child. We envision a culture in which there is a system of support that makes it possible for every person to achieve reproductive well-being.
