About Us

The 1789 Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised of public health professionals, registered nurses, midwives and physicians dedicated to improving the health of mothers and newborns in underserved populations. The 1789 Fund works in some of the world's most vulnerable nations to decrease the number of mothers and newborns dying in pregnancy and childbirth. To date, we have trained over 53 midwives in Nawalparasi, Nepal under the Terese Bassi Initiative.


The 1789 Fund seeks to ensure that every woman can enjoy her right to maternal health and every child can grow up to achieve his or her full potential, regardless of their geographical location. We believe every mother and baby deserve a happy and healthy outcome in pregnancy and childbirth. The 1789 Fund is investing in our world's future through midwifery education and increasing accessibility to critical life-saving services for the women and children.
