The Jane Fund of Central Massachusetts was started in the early 1990s when a young woman, pregnant after being raped by a family member, called on friends for help. What began as a response among a few friends and neighbors has become the Jane Fund of Central Massachusetts, an all-volunteer organization committed to making abortion accessible to all women, especially the working poor. Their experience drove home the notion that choice should not be limited to women who have money.
Women who receive funding are encouraged to pay the Fund back so that other women can benefit from funding as well.
Last year the Jane Fund of Central Massachusetts helped over 100 women who otherwise could not have paid for their abortions.
For abortion Funds, raising money is half the battle, because they can’t help women unless they have something to give. Donating to your local abortion Fund means giving a woman the resources she needs to make the choice that is right for her.
