The Northwest Abortion Access Fund is an abortion fund serving Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. Abortion funds are community-based groups that raise and grant funds locally to help people who otherwise could not afford the cost of safe, legal abortion care.
The NWAAF’s mission is to fund abortion and break down barriers to access to this service in the Northwest. The NWAAF envisions a world where people can access safe, legal abortion care with respect, dignity and compassion. In addition to their hotline staffed by volunteer advocates, the NWAAF also helps pay for abortion care by sending funding for those in need directly to the clinic as well as assists with transportation and lodging costs for appointments.
The Northwest region is experiencing an anti-abortion movement that has been strengthened by legislation passed in recent months—especially pertaining to Idaho and Alaska.
