Local, regional and national Abortion Funds help subsidize the cost of abortions for women unable to afford care. The local and regional funds are small, but know their constituents and the needs in their local communities. Usually these funds have smaller budgets. The NAF Hotline is a nationwide fund that supports the local clinics throughout the USA, subsidizing abortion care costs for women in need.
The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.

MAC is a practical abortion fund. We do not provide financial assistance for abortion procedures—instead, we assist with the other costs and difficulties associated with getting an abortion and our coordinators will work to connect you to the abortion procedure funds you may qualify for. If you are traveling to, from or within the Midwest to access safe and legal abortion services, we host and help with transportation.
We make choice possible.
The Brigid Alliance arranges and funds confidential, personalized travel support to support individuals across the country who are forced to travel for later abortion care in increasingly hostile environments.
