Abortion Funds 

At our core, the National Network of Abortion Funds is a dynamic network of grassroots abortion funds and thousands of activists who serve the women living in their communities, states, regions, and country. All of our actions are guided by the work of our abortion funds and the needs of the women they assist. The majority of our staff are either current or former abortion fund activists. Seven of our ten board members are abortion fund activists.
