What we aim to solve

The constitutional right to an abortion in the United States granted via Roe v. Wade has never been a promise to actual abortion access due to cost, lack of insurance coverage, limited geography of clinics, and unending state-based restrictions by anti-choice politicians. Local abortion funds have been navigating this reality for many decades. They seek to mitigate a broken political system and a national philanthropic abortion funding strategy that has inadvertently created compounding barriers and replicated the bureaucracy people experience when trying to access health care systems. Now as we approach the dismantling of Roe v. Wade by this Supreme Court, it is time for a radical change in logistics, structure, and funding strategy to ensure abortion care. It is time to trust the wisdom and expertise of local abortion funds in collaboration with abortion providers to m

NNAF builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barrier to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersection of racial, economic and reproductive justice.

NNAF's work involves investment in five core strategies, each of which has been identified as a leverage point in implementing our theory of change (fund abortion, build power): becoming an organizing powerhouse; building sustainable organizations with strong leadership; fostering radical collaboration and experimentation; engaging and building a base of people most affected; and uniting our voices for culture change.

With our members across 38 states, we work directly with people who do not have the resources to pay for an abortion, cultivating firsthand knowledge of the complexity of barriers people face, as well as keen insight into the long-lasting shifts needed in order to truly achieve abortion access and the rights, resources and recognition for all people to exercise bodily autonomy and thrive.

NNAF monitors the success of our work against the expected indicators of success aligned with our four discrete program areas: individual leadership development, organizational development, network building and movement-building. Our annual indicators are developed and measured using both qualitative and quantitative data.

In partnership with NNAF's network of member funds throughout the country, more than $3 million of direct financial assistance was disbursed to 30,000+ people seeking abortion access in the past year; this includes funding disbursed through NNAF's George Tiller Memorial Abortion Fund, which provides vital assistance to those whose access to abortion care is heavily prevented by systemic barriers, such as lengthy distances to travel, term limits, parental consent laws and waiting periods. Moving forward, our work hinges on building and growing the power of NNAF's 20,000 donors, 1600 volunteers and 100,000 callers per year as both a tremendous grassroots fundraising base and as leaders mobilizing their time, energy, money and voices to take action collectively.
