Jane Doe Fund
If you live in Michigan or a surrounding state, the Jane Doe Fund can help you pay for your abortion. They can also sometimes help pay for ultrasound, contraception (including emergency contraception), or assist with transportation, lodging, and childcare related to your appointment. Call and leave a message, and someone will call you back within 3 days.
Other services: ultrasound, meals, childcare, emergency contraception, escort to judicial bypass hearings (for minors)
The Jane Doe Fund was created in 1991, largely in response to the elimination of Medicaid funding for nearly all abortions. The Fund receives hundreds of calls for assistance each year, and currently the Fund is able to assist about 40 women per year. Fund raising is on-going throughout the year.
The Jane Doe Fund is operated entirely by volunteers. Volunteers answer the phone line, accompany women to appointments as needed, raise funds, and serve on the board of directors, and much more.
