How to Join the National Network of Abortion Funds.
Twenty-two local abortion funds founded the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF). Today, 100 member funds in our network continue to support abortion seekers and work to make abortion accessible for all.
We’re thankful you’re also interested in building power and funding abortions, but we’re taking a break from adding new funds to our network. Applications will open again in the Spring of 2024.

Tips for Starting New Abortion Funds
Do you see a need in your community for a new abortion fund? Read these important tips first.

And that means those funds might not be able to support abortion seekers effectively.

Determine the services the community lacks, and develop partnerships with local abortion funds and abortion justice organizations. Work together to support the needs of local folks.
What if existing funds don’t represent the needs of your community?
There are 100 abortion funds in the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF). These grassroots organizations exist in almost every state and are impressive in their work.
But at NNAF, we understand that established abortion funds might not fulfill the needs of your community or represent the people who live there.
