When our government abandons its communities, we show up for reproductive justice, and we care for one another. At Lilith Fund, we run hotline and hear from folks all across the southern half of the state who need an abortion but can’t afford it. We provide small grants to cover a portion of the costs of their abortion care procedures. Often the grants we provide to our clients can be the difference between accessing a safe and legal abortion, or not having a choice at all.

We depend on the grassroots power and support of people like YOU so that we can continue to provide a compassionate and consistent service to our callers. Join us in working towards a goal of raising $100,000 for abortion access in Texas!

What is Bowl-a-Thon? Bowl-a-Thon is a super fun online fundraiser in which abortion funds from all across the country raise money to provide financial assistance to people who can’t afford to pay for their abortions. Anyone can participate! In a nutshell, people raise money for Lilith Fund, and then at the end of April show up for an awesome party. If you are in Austin or Houston, you’ll have a bowling party. If you are San Antonio, you’ll be having a roller skating party. It’s a great way for supporters like you to represent Lilith Fund and break down barriers to abortion access for our callers.

How does it work? We’re using an online fundraising system hosted by the National Network of Abortion Funds to make it easy for everyone to raise money. It allows you to create your own personal fundraising page to easily manage your donations. Start fundraising now and at the end of April, come out and celebrate all the money you have raised and bowl with local Lilith Fund supporters.

But why should I bowl for abortion access? Lilith Fund heard from more than 5,500 callers in need of abortion funding in 2017. We’re only able to provide assistance to about one-fourth of our callers, but with your support, we’ll be able to fund more people and make an even greater impact in our communities.

**Bowl-a-Thon = protecting abortion access + having a blast!**

You can either head up your own team by being a team captain or you can join an existing team that needs teammates.

What do team captains do? Team captains lead the charge. They will recruit and lead 5 bowling buddies for their team. Captains will be the primary contact for the event.

How do I captain a team? Just register! First create a team page, then create your own individual fundraising page. Don’t forget to do both! Once you register, you can use our online system to send emails to friends and family asking them to support your team by pledging to increase access to abortion in Texas. So come up with a great team name and sign up.

What do teammates do? Each teammate commits to raise $100 for the Lilith Fund. Sign up online and make sure to join an existing team. Don’t know which team to join? Email us at and we’ll help you find one!

What if I don’t want to bowl? The great thing about this year is that bowling isn’t the only event! Depending on your city, you’ll have a chance to roller skate, attend a happy hour, or go to a big party. Stay tuned for more details on your city’s event. Regardless of the event-style, you can choose to come out and just cheer. Cheer for the bowlers, cheers for the costumes, and cheer for reproductive justice.
