The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund is an all-volunteer group that formed in 1999 to help people pay for abortions, transportation, and lodging. The EMA Fund is committed to building a movement for reproductive justice and hosts educational and community events. The Fund is composed of nearly 50 young and committed volunteers.
In the past eleven years, the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund has helped over 4,000 callers and their families who could not otherwise afford to pay for an abortion. The Fund provides direct financial assistance, financial strategizing, referrals, and information about getting abortion coverage through MassHealth, the state’s Medicaid program for low-income people. The Fund is also working on a project with other abortion funds in Massachusetts to make MassHealth more effective for women seeking abortions.
The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund is committed to assisting other marginalized person get abortion care, including non-citizens, young people, people with limited English proficiency, gender variant people, and people of all abilities. The Fund provides travel, lodging, and other practical assistance to people who need more than just financial help.
The Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund holds two volunteer trainings every year and has a variety of other opportunities for getting involved, including through its fundraising team, practical support team, and various task forces. Visit their website or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about joining this dynamic group of activists.
Of course, for abortion funds, raising money is half the battle, since they can’t help women unless they have something to give. Donating to the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund means giving someone the resources she needs to make the decision that is right for her.
