About Carolina Abortion Fund
The Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) believes that all people should be able to exercise reproductive self-determination, regardless of their income. CAF believes that abortion is healthcare, and healthcare should be well resourced and accessible to all.
Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) is a 501c3 nonprofit that was founded in 2011 by a group of clinic defenders who were tired of seeing patients delaying or cancelling their appointments just because they couldn’t afford the full cost out of pocket. The Fund began distributing grants to assist people seeking abortion services in April 2012.
Carolina Abortion Fund's Community
Just a few months after forming in the fall of 2011, the Carolina Abortion Fund was able to begin assisting callers. The fund’s network consists of a board of directors, dedicated volunteers and generous individual donors who all help operate the Fund.
In the spring of 2012, the Carolina Abortion Fund participated in the National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon for the first time, raising over $18,000 and establishing the fund as an energetic and spirited organization of activists determined to help make choice a reality for women in North Carolina.
In 2013, the Carolina Abortion Fund was one of the top three Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon fundraisers. They raised over $40,000 in their second year of fundraising, enabling them to help twice the number of weekly callers as the previous year.
The fund’s network consists of a board of directors, a small number of staff, and many dedicated volunteers and generous individual donors who all help operate CAF.
Since CAF’s founding, they have distributed nearly 9 million in funding to North and South Carolinians.
