Services and Partners
Beyond publishing research and intellectual resources, we’re also expanding the services we offer, both directly and through our partnered organizations.
States are increasingly scrambling to navigate the unprecedented social, economic, and environmental challenges brought on by declining birth rates; we work closely with governments to offer information, policy suggestions, and a support network. We prioritize removing barriers over greater government intervention; for example, removing unnecessary licensing requirements for daycare providers that artificially increase the price of childcare. We always welcome policy advisors and state officials to reach out!
The modern dating scene isn’t optimized for long-term, healthy relationships. The inability to find the right partner is an understated but critical bottleneck that prevents people from starting families. Pronatalist.org is partnered with Keeper, a pro-human and pro-family dating app that uses a combination of machine learning, human matchmakers, and the latest relationship science to make serious marriages happen.
Fertility is time-sensitive, with female fertility declining quicker. Between the ages of 15 and 49, about 1 in 5 women struggle with infertility. This is why it’s so critical to educate young people, and especially young women, about their options early on. Pronatalist.org takes our resources to college campuses and professional organizations, where we speak to highly ambitious women about where family might fit into their long term plans, and how fertility care can help them prepare for their future work-life balance.
Egg and Sperm Donation, Surrogacy
We want to support parents from all backgrounds. Recognizing the diversity of paths to becoming a parent, we work with egg and sperm banks, donors, and recipients to facilitate alternative ways to having children. We also work with surrogacy organizations, and advocate for the removal of unnecessary government regulations that pose barriers to both parents and the surrogates. This is especially valuable for our LGBT allies, and we work closely with healthcare and cultural leaders in the community to address their unique needs.
We leverage modern technology to improve the quantity and quality of reproductive healthcare. Working with investors and organizations, we direct capital towards reproductive health companies at the margins of progress: companies that innovate in and expand access to IVF, polygenic risk screening, artificial wombs, and more. Stay tuned for our incoming partnership with the Egg Freezing Ambassador Program!
Childcare and Education
Partnered with Pronatalist.org, the Collins Institute is a school for gifted youth—with gifted defined through a will to learn, and not IQ. The Institute is building up an education platform and mentorship networks that make homeschooling for students with diverse needs both cost-effective and more effective. We are working on ways to make childcare more accessible. Check back soon for more updates!
Demography and Social Sciences
From population studies to economics, we promote and publish research to comprehensively understand the causes of declining birth rates.
Science and Technology
We bring scientists, engineers, and other researchers together to push the boundaries of progress in the reproductive space.
Money matters. That’s why we work with nonprofits and venture capitalists to fund value-aligned projects in the world of babies and birth rates.
Our ongoing media engagement with cultural commentators, journalists, and thought leaders helps shape public discourse.
We connect physicians, donors, surrogates, and other care providers together and with the public.
This is our most important collaboration. Parents are our favorite experts, and our networks ultimately exist to support families of all cultures and sexualities.
