Facebook Fundraiser Toolkit - National Network of Abortion Funds

Facebook Fundraiser Toolkit

Support the National Network of Abortion Funds with a Facebook fundraiser!

You don’t need to wait for your birthday to start a Facebook fundraiser. In 2019, when statewide abortion bans were introduced across the country, supporters like you raised more than $150,000 for abortion funds through Facebook fundraisers. We do more for abortion funds when we do it together. 

For decades, abortion funds have existed as a way to bridge gaps left behind by anti-abortion legislation. The COVID-19 global pandemic only further highlighted the vast racial and economic inequities in accessing healthcare, including abortion. It’s another reminder that  “legal” is not the same as “accessible.” 

Will you show your solidarity by starting a fundraiser to build power for abortion funds, expand abortion access, and bust stigma?

“Why are you raising money?” Sample Text

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 to callers facing barriers to abortion access. 

That’s why I’m raising money for the National Network of Abortion Funds. NNAF builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.

When it comes to abortion, legality hasn’t ever been enough. Abortion is, and has always been, most accessible to those with privilege and resources. The National Network of Abortion Funds works toward building a future where everyone can access the abortion they seek and be met with compassion. 

I give to abortion funds because redistributing wealth is an act of solidarity. Will you join me in supporting the National Network of Abortion Funds?

Abortion funds are local grassroots organizations, made up of the people in communities most affected by abortion barriers — and two-thirds of abortion funds are made up entirely of volunteers! They provide a wide range of services for their callers, including paying for abortion procedures, transportation, housing, childcare, and doula support. The National Network of Abortion Funds works to expand abortion access by building power with members, connecting funds across state lines, and helping to strengthen the infrastructure of individual abortion funds.

Funding abortion is a political act that allows those who benefit from white supremacy to shift their resources to those who’ve historically been deprived of those same opportunities. Will you join me in this meaningful act of solidarity and make a donation to the National Network of Abortion Funds?

Abortion funds have been navigating a low-access reality for a long time, and have built systems that work, systems that rely on communities caring for one another to ensure we all have access to the abortions we need.
