What is Fund-a-Thon? Great question! Fund-a-Thon is a nationwide fundraising event coordinated by the National Network for Abortion Funds. Participants of Fund-a-Thon ask the people they know to help them reach a personally meaningful fundraising goal by making a donation to their local abortion fund. In Central and Southeast Texas, that’s us!
When is Fund-a-Thon? Fund-a-Thon starts now and runs through May 31. That means you have until the end of May to create or join a team to fundraise OR give to a team to support Fund-a-Thon.
Why should I participate? Even with Roe’s demise last summer, Lilith Fund has been here supporting Texans by providing resources and information to callers navigating this more burdensome landscape. After Roe, we pivoted to fund essential non-abortion reproductive healthcare needs like ultrasounds and contraception. And thanks to a recent court ruling, we are now funding abortion care again for Texans, without fear of criminalization, in states where abortion is legal.
Fund-a-Thon is the perfect way to fundraise for the hotline while also speaking with your loved ones about why supporting access to abortion is more important than ever.
