Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

HLA seeks to develop a pro-life worldview for all human beings with the following goals in mind:

1. Reach students on every campus every year.
2. Support all pro-life organizations including each pregnancy center.
3. Increase community outreach initiatives to encourage church pro-life efforts.
4. Expand global outreach opportunities.

HLA creates comprehensive pro-life magazines and materials that inform and inspire people from all walks of life to reject abortion, the so-called safe-sex myths, and forms of euthanasia and assisted suicide. Reading these materials is often the first step in changing the hearts and minds of individuals when a simple magazine is placed in the hands of a college student or young woman on the street. Through cooperation with individual volunteer partners and organizations and direct advertising campaigns, these resources have been used in all 50 states and 88 different countries reaching 236.2 million readers to date.

Beyond the comprehensive magazines, a wide variety of fact cards, stickers, and other materials can help you share a powerful pro-life message through various mission activities. Review a complete list of in-stock resources at Check out the new 2022/23 campus impact magazine landing page at and share the flipbook or articles via a favorite social media app.

HLA has a 45-plus-year history of reaching diverse audiences with compelling pro-life messages. In 1990 groundbreaking advertisement supplements were created to share a pro-life message in response to popular media outlets, including major market newspapers, embargo of new and emerging information on the child in the womb, abortion's negative impact on women, and other pro-life topics.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Aug 01 - Jul 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
