Women's Medical Fund

The Women's Medical Fund provides money to help pay for abortion care in Wisconsin. If you live in Wisconsin or are travelling to Wisconsin for an abortion, call the Fund during normal business hours to ask about help after you have an appointment set up. You must be at least 8 weeks pregnant to receive help from this Fund.
The Women's Medical Fund is an all-volunteer organization established in 1972 to assist Wisconsin women who are seeking to end an unwanted pregnancy but cannot afford the entire cost of an abortion. WMF is crucial to help ensure women’s ability to exercise reproductive choice, because Wisconsin has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation. Poor and rural women are particularly affected by these onerous laws.
Most of the women and girls helped receive their health care through state Medicaid. However, Medicaid in Wisconsin will not pay for abortion services except, very rarely, in cases of rape, incest, or to protect the life or health of the woman or girl. Most of the pregnancies of those WMF helps are the result of contraceptive failure.
The right to choose an abortion is meaningless without access to abortion services.
Since 1972 WMF has been the only all-volunteer independent abortion fund, operating continuously, serving women and girls throughout Wisconsin. The Women's Medical Fund has helped almost 20,000 women and girls pay for abortions that they otherwise would not have been able to afford.
WMF is a resource of last resort, when all other sources of funds have been exhausted. WMF is frugal, trying to help as many women and girls as possible. Over 99.5% of all donations go directly to pay for abortions.
For abortion Funds, raising money is half the battle, because they can’t help women unless they have something to give. Donating to your local abortion Fund means giving a woman the resources she needs to make the choice that is right for her.
