About Freedom Fund (Colorado)
We announced our new name, “Women’s Freedom Fund” in May 2017.
Originally The Freedom Fund, it was established by the First Universalist Church of Denver in 1984 when Colorado voters ended Medicaid funding for abortions. For the past 33 years, The Freedom Fund has provided financial assistance to those who decide to have abortions. In 2017, management of the Freedom Fund shifted to the NARAL Pro Choice Colorado Foundation and became The Women’s Freedom Fund. The NARAL Pro-Choice Colorado Foundation was established in 1967 as a 501c3 organization in Colorado. Our mission is to support and protect, as a fundamental right and value, an individual’s freedom to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices through education, training, organizing, legal action, and public policy.
We are committed to maintain and grow the Women’s Freedom Fund to serve people seeking abortion care. Our partnership allows us to seek grants from foundations and broadens the base of potential support to serve more women. Our hope is to make this a lasting effort in Colorado that is developed to better meet the needs of individuals and families in a challenging political environment for abortion care in the United States.
We believe this is an integral step forward in our mission which includes expanding access to abortion care. At the Women’s Freedom Fund, we believe abortion care is healthcare and full access is a form of economic justice.
Women, transgender people, and gender-nonconforming people have abortions. We encourage using gender inclusive language when referring to those who have abortions. We recognize that WFF’s name includes the word “Women” and that this word does not represent all of the people who have abortions.
The Women’s Freedom Fund seeks to be a welcoming and safe resource and we are committed to using correct names and pronouns for you. We do not discriminate funding based on anyone’s age, religion, income level, marital status, physical ability, gender expression or identity, sexual orientation, race, or ethnicity.
If you would like to make sure no one experiences a financial burden when it comes to abortion, you may contribute to the Women’s Freedom Fund here.
