Access to legal abortion is under constant threat in Kentucky and surrounding states. Thanks to you, our generous donors, A Fund has been able to provide financial assistance to women in need for more than twenty-five years.
In the past twelve months, donors have contributed over $104,000 to help A Fund in its overarching mission—to support women’s reproductive choices. The need is ever greater, and the number of patients we assisted increased dramatically over the past year. We are proud of our growth and grateful for your donations.
A Fund, Inc. By the Numbers
During the past fiscal year, ending June 30, 2019:

[Special thanks to our Treasurer, Doug Deatz, for compiling the above data and for all of our regular Board reports.]
In fiscal year 2019, A Fund supplied financial assistance to Kentucky women who terminated pregnancies at eight clinics in eight different states. We also continued our ABC Campaign (A for Abortion, B for Plan B emergency contraception, and C for Long Acting Reversible Contraception, or LARCs). With block grants to the University of Louisville’s Ryan Family Planning Clinic and University of Louisville Campus Health Service, A Fund provided long-acting reversible contraception (LARCs) and emergency contraception (the “morning-after pill”) at affordable cost to patients in need.
A Fund will also participate again in Give For Good Louisville on September 12, 2019. Mark your calendar for this annual day of giving to local non-profits, and help us earn matching gifts, win prizes, and expand our capacity to help even more women next year!
Thank you for your moral and financial support!
