Services and Partners
Though we actively support, produce, and share research, policy guidelines, and information related to demographic collapse and pronatalism, we are strong believers in achieving concrete results. If you feel there is something missing from our on-the-ground work below, don't hesitate to reach out and make recommendations!
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. Rather than jump first to costly subsidies (which are questionably effective at best), we heavily encourage reductions in government interventions that incumber child rearing, such as unnecessary licensing requirements for daycare providers that artificially increase the price of childcare. We warmly welcome policy advisors and state officials to reach out!
The modern dating scene isn’t optimized for long-term, healthy relationships. Difficulty finding the right partner is an understated but critical bottleneck that prevents people from starting families. In addition to conducting in-house research and experimenting with foundation-organized dating market interventions, 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 earlier. Between the ages of 15 and 49, roughly one in five women struggle with infertility. As such, it is critical to educate young people, and especially young women, about their options early on. Pronatalist.org works with university groups and professional organizations, helping highly ambitious women develop thoughtful plans around their fertility that do not preclude them from also pursuing ambitious careers.
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 intended parents and surrogates alike. This is especially relevant for our LGBT partners, and we work closely with healthcare and cultural leaders in the community to address their unique needs.
We leverage modern technology to improve the availability and quality of reproductive healthcare. Working with investors and organizations, we direct capital toward reproductive health companies at the margins of progress: Companies that innovate in and expand access to IVF, polygenic risk screening, artificial wombs, and more.
Childcare and Education
Partnered with Pronatalist.org, the Collins Institute is a school for gifted youth—with giftedness defined by initiative and curiosity rather than IQ. The Institute has three aims:
1. To approach education in a manner that is optimized around student outcomes rather than tradition or bureaucratic inertia.
2. To make elite education (complete with meaningful network building) both widely available and affordable.
3. To provide an alternative to main stream education that does not erode families' unique cultures in favor of a dominate, mainstream culture.
Demography and Social Sciences
From population studies to economics, we promote and publish research to comprehensively understand the drivers behind declining birth rates.
Science and Technology
We bring scientists, engineers, and other researchers together to push the boundaries of progress in the reproductive space.
We work with nonprofits and venture capitalists to secure funding for projects and initiatives designed to combat falling birth rates and enable post-prosperity cultures to reach sustainable reproduction levels—hand-in-hand with gender equality, technology, and education.
Our ongoing media engagement with cultural commentators, journalists, and thought leaders helps shape public discourse. We furthermore provide interested families with tools designed to protect and preserve their unique cultures, values, and worldviews.
We connect stakeholders in reproductive technology (ranging from entrepreneurs to doctors, intended parents, and surrogates) with each other and the public in an effort to make reproductive technology more affordable and accessible.
Families provide us with key insights that shape our programming, research, and proposed policies. We strive to connect families to resources that help them have and successfully raise whatever number of children is best for them.
