Despite the 2020 pandemic, A Fund enjoyed the support of a record number of donors who gave record dollars for abortion and contraception funding!
In the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020 A Fund helped fund 1058 women at the EMW clinic in Louisville, plus 62 women at ten other clinics.
We sent $10,000 to the UL Medical School Ryan Clinic to defray insertion costs for Long Acting Reversible Contraception (implants, IUDs) for 56 low income women who want to plan and space their pregnancies.

Annual GIVE FOR GOOD DAY: 9/17/20
September 17, 2020 is Give for Good Louisville day, the annual day of online giving sponsored by the Community Foundation of Louisville. Please mark your calendars and put A Fund at the top of your giving list. Your personal online gift will be augmented by incentives and grants from other generous foundations on this day only.
Now that the US Supreme Court has ruled that employers can deny women contraceptive coverage based on the employer’s religious or moral beliefs, contraception will remain difficult and expensive to obtain for many workers.
The need for abortion funding is not going away and neither is A Fund.
Thank you for your steadfast support of Kentuckiana women in need of abortion and contraception funding.
