About Carolina Abortion Fund
The Carolina Abortion Fund believes that women should be able to exercise reproductive self-determination, regardless of their income.
Founded in 2011 by a small group of committed volunteers in the Triangle area, the Carolina Abortion Fund is a grassroots feminist organization dedicated to reproductive justice for all communities in North Carolina. The Fund began distributing grants to assist low-income women and girls 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 Carolina Abortion Fund is a federal charity, and all of its funding comes from individual, tax-deductible donations.
