About Joan Bechhofer Fund

Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes created the Joan Bechhofer Fund to help ease the burden of medical costs and ensure that women and girls can get the health care they need. The Fund is dedicated to ensuring that women are treated with dignity and respect when seeking abortion care.

Joan Bechhofer Fund's Community

Last year the Joan Bechhofer Fund helped dozens of women and girls who otherwise would not have been able to afford an abortion.

In addition, Planned Parenthood offers a wide array of health and education services, including sliding-scale fees for low-income patients.
