Join the National Network of Abortion Funds
Since 1993, the National Network of Abortion Funds has served as an important resource for abortion funds around the country and the world. We've grown from a small network of 20 abortion funds into a dynamic and thriving web of nearly 100 funds in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and online.
We represent abortion funds and the women who seek help from abortion funds. We work to build the capacity of member abortion funds so that they can help more women more effectively. We consistently advocate on behalf of the women who seek abortion funding by fighting for better laws. We connect funds to each other, we connect women to each other, and we connect the fight for abortion funding to basic fairness and justice.
To join the Network, call 617-267-7161 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
