Key resources for abortion funds
The National Network of Abortion Funds offers important resources to abortion fund activists so that we can make sure that these abortion funds are as effective as possible and helping as many women as they can.
- Each year, we host a vibrant convention for abortion fund activists from around the country and the world at our National Organizing Summit. The four-day Summit arms activists with new skills and tools for getting bigger and stronger -- plus it gives activists the chance to bridge hundreds of miles and spend some seriously quality face time. Allies are welcome to attend our Summits and we accept proposals for workshops or panels from fund activists and allies. For more information, contact our Summit Coordinator.
- Striking down barriers to abortion! Going balls out for abortion access! Striking Hyde nationwide! Every spring, we organize a National Abortion Access Bowl-a-thon -- a series of bowling and fundraising events that take place each spring in more than 20 cities across the country. Money raised goes straight to abortion funds helping the women in their communities. Interested in getting involved? Check out http://bowlathon.nnaf.org.
- Abortion funds are uniquely suited to raise their voices about the needs of women in their communities. Too often, debates about abortion and access for low-income women ignore the lives of women affected. The National Network of Abortion Funds can provide you with tools that make it quick and easy for abortion fund activists to talk about the importance of abortion funding -- and to help women speak for themselves. Contact us for more information.
- The members-only website is a new and secure online meeting place for abortion fund activists. The members-only site is where you'll find up-to-date news about abortion access, changing laws, and the work of sister abortion funds. It's also a safe and exciting place to meet other activists, to tap into their experiences, and to stay connected to the growing movement to Fund Abortion Now! Did you forget your username or password to the site? Need to register? Email our program associate for information.
- The National Network of Abortion Funds provides one-on-one member support to abortion fund activists. Do you have questions about writing a direct mail letter, hosting an educational event, applying for grants from foundations, or writing an op-ed for your local paper? Need advice on how to start a Twitter account or how to sign up for 501(c)(3) status? Email us and we'll direct your question to the person with the know-how to answer it!
- The National Network of Abortion Funds provides all abortion funds with free web space and email accounts. You reserve the domain name and design the website and we'll host it on our server at no charge. Find out more by emailing our staff.
