Since those early beginnings, Planned Parenthood has had several President's, such as: Alan Frank Guttmacher (1962-1974), Faye Wattleton (1978-1992), and Gloria Feldt (1996-2006). On February 15, 2006, Cecile Richards became president of the organization. During the 1970's President Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act. This amended the Public Health Service Act which provided funding for family planning services. The amendment allowed the organization to receive public funding throughout the years. Most of the revenue is put towards provisionary health services. One-third of the monies received is through government grants. In 2009 Planned Parenthood received over $360 million dollars in grants alone.
