New River Abortion Access Fund

About This Fund

Volunteers respond to requests for funding that come in through our helpline and pledge to cover a portion of the cost, typically - per caller. Anyone can call or text the toll-free, confidential line and leave a message. A trained volunteer will return their call within 24-48 hours. Pledges are faxed or emailed depending on the clinic’s preference, and funding is sent directly to the clinic after the procedure takes place. If necessary, we help the caller identify nearby abortion providers, connect them to other sources of funding, navigate transportation options, secure overnight lodging, and provide referrals to post-abortion or crisis support services. Last year, NRAAF received 645 calls and pledged a total of ,978 to help 288 individuals pay for their procedures.

About The Host Organization

Based in Blacksburg, Va, the New River Abortion Access Fund (NRAAF) is a 501(c)(3) reproductive justice organization working to eliminate economic and logistical barriers to abortion access. NRAAF operates a volunteer-run helpline that provides direct financial and practical support (rides, lodging, gas, meals, childcare, etc.) to Southwest Virginians and Appalachians seeking abortion care. We also fund callers who are living in other areas of the state, and those who are traveling to Virginia for an abortion.
