Each spring, abortion funds across the country participate in Fund-a-Thon, a grassroots celebration of our community power. For the past eleven years, NYAAF has participated in the national peer-to-peer friend-raiser that brings in the majority of our annual budget, all from people like you and me. NYAAF is asking you to support abortion access by signing up to fundraise for NYAAF. You can create a team or join one here!
Because of you and our community, the New York Abortion Access Fund can fund abortions for everyone who calls us seeking assistance.
Every year, we rely on you to mobilize your loved ones, have heart-to-heart conversations about abortion, and invite others to build collective power and advance abortion access.
Participating in the virtual Fund-a-Thon is easy, fun, and grassroots-driven. When you sign up as a fundraiser, you reach out to friends and family and let them know why abortion funding is important to you, and ask them to join you in this work. We will provide sample emails and scripts for you to use!
If you’d prefer, we invite you to make a one-time gift to support our Fund-a-Thon efforts.
As NYAAF embarks on a transformation period to focus on our organizational wellness, we will not host a formal event alongside the Fund-a-Thon season. While we continue with grassroots fundraising, we invite you to creatively bring your own community together to reach your fundraising goal. You could plan a toast to abortion funding or a host a virtual game night — over Zoom or in the park! Auction off the products of your newly-acquired quarantine needlepoint or baking hobby! We’re excited to hear about your plans!
Fund-a-Thon will run until the end of May, and we need to raise $60,000 to continue meeting the needs of our callers. We hope that you will join us!
With your continued participation in Fund-a-Thon, together we will show care for people who have abortions, now and for years to come.
