National Abortion Funds You Can Donate To Right Now (With Their Charity Navigator Scores)

As of Friday, June 24, I — along with every other menstruating person in America — no longer have federally protected rights to my own body. The Supreme Court has officially voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, which has protected citizens’ constitutional right to an abortion for the past 50 years. Now, women in about half of the US states will no longer have access to safe, legal abortions, and they may have to go to incredible lengths just to take control of their reproductive organs. The Handmade’s Tale references have become so on the nose that they’re beyond cliche.

But despite the anger and confusion that we feel toward the Supreme Court‘s decision, there is still hope moving forward. The best thing we can do is take action, whether that means attending protests, spreading awareness, organizing, voting our asses off, and/or donating to organizations that are fighting to keep abortions safe and accessible in every state. In fact, donating to trusted abortion funds and support groups is one of the best things you can do right now. Below, we’ve compiled a list of several national abortion funds and listed their scores on Charity Navigator.*

*A score of 75 or above indicates a passing level of efficacy, endurance (the non-profit is likely to last), and financial health.

National Abortion Federation

The mission of the National Abortion Federation is to unite, represent, serve, and support abortion providers in delivering patient-centered, evidence-based care. This organization provides direct service to patients who need help accessing abortion care through a toll-free, multi-lingual hotline for abortion referrals and financial assistance. Every dollar donated to the patient assistance funds goes directly to helping patients access the abortion care they need — including procedure costs, travel-related expenses, translation services, child care, and more.

Keep Our Clinics

The Keep Our Clinics campaign is the Abortion Care Network’s latest effort to protect access to care and support independent clinics across the country. It’s a fundraising campaign for independent abortion clinics across the US. Your donation helps independent clinics keep their doors open so they can provide abortion care, and your funds go to making necessary security improvements, replacing and updating medical equipment, covering legal costs to maintain compliance with politically-motivated regulations, clinic building maintenance, and repair, and more.
