Support NNAF’s Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign with a Facebook fundraiser!

It doesn’t need to be your birthday to start a Facebook fundraiser. Last year, when statewide abortion bans were introduced across the country, supporters like you raised more than $150,000 for abortion funds through Facebook fundraisers. Now, funds are facing the COVID-19 pandemic crisis — and the likely negative impact of a Supreme Court decision in June Medical Services v. Russo. 

That’s why NNAF launched the Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign: to support abortion funds and their callers during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. We’re moving $2 million directly to local abortion funds by the end of June. We’re counting on individual supporters like you to contribute $250,000 to the campaign.  

Will you help us meet our goal by starting a Facebook fundraiser?

“Why are you raising money?” Sample Text

The need for an abortion doesn’t stop during a crisis, and neither do abortion funds. As threats to abortion access accumulate — threats like Texas’ Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt in 2016, Louisiana’s June Medical Services v. Russo in 2020, and the current global pandemic abortion funds continue to provide compassionate, community care. They know how to respond to a crisis, but they need our support to do so. 

That’s why I’m raising money for the National Network of Abortion Funds. Will you join me in ensuring that abortion funds are able to help as many callers as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond? 

Donations of any amount make a difference.

The need for an abortion doesn’t stop during a crisis, and neither do lawmakers’ threats to abortion access.  Join me in ensuring abortion funds have the resources they need to fund abortion during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond by donating to the Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign. 

In 2020, abortion access is still under attack — even during a pandemic. Abortion funds are experts at responding to a crisis. The Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign, launched by the National Network of Abortion Funds, is raising $250,000 for abortion funds and their callers. Will you join me in supporting abortion access?

I give to abortion funds because they offer stigma-free, compassionate support, even in times of crisis. Will you join me in contributing to the Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign? 

Did you know that two-thirds of abortion funds are run entirely by volunteers? Will you join me in making a donation in honor of these rockstars of abortion access? 

Every spring, abortion funds across the country host their annual local fundraisers as part of the National Abortion Access Fund-a-Thon. The funds raised during these events are used to provide assistance to callers facing barriers to accessing an abortion — financial or otherwise. Abortion funds had to cancel their in-person fundraisers this year due to the pandemic. That means less resources when funds were already limited. That’s why I’m fundraising for abortion funds. If you can, please join me in contributing to the Abortion Funds Crisis Relief Campaign. 

I’m fundraising for abortion funds because they care for our communities in compassionate and practical ways. Can’t afford to put food on the table and pay for your abortion? They’ve got you. Need a ride to and from the clinic? Abortion funds are there for that and so much more. We all love someone who has had an abortion, so let’s show some love for abortion funds!
