It also said that the $554.6 million in government health services reimbursements and grants it received in teh eyar that ended on June 30, 2016 equaled about 41 percent of its total funding.

This chart summarizing Planned Parenthood's funding sources in the year that ended on June 30, 2016 was published in its "2015-2016 Annual Report."

Planned Parenthood also outlined some of its activism and advertising programs, including its 300+ college campus groups.
