Ensuring access, respecting women (and everyone with a uterus), and protecting reproductive rights since 2000. Abortion Access Fund, Inc., (AAF), is a small clinic-based fund in Bellevue, NE. Our mission is to increase access to abortion care throughout the Midwest with financial and practical assistance. We raise funds by individual donations from supporters of choice!
Since our start the Abortion Access Fund, Inc. has raised over $20,500 - all from individual donors.
In 2009 the Bellevue, Nebraska clinic was damaged by an arson fire. That fire, which was believed to have been set by anti-abortion extremists, caused all records prior to 2009 to be lost and destroyed. Therefore, accurately tracking how many people were funded prior to that time is not possible. Below is a chart of our funding provided from 2010- 2016.
Fiscal Year (Jan.-Dec.) Dollars Funded # of Women Funded
2016 $4,444.67 59
2015 $1,745.00 15
2014 $2,005.95 39
2013 $1,267.98 32
2012 $1,702.00 28
2011 $2,237.00 35
2010 $7,567.00 49

"I wanted to write and thank you for all of your help during the past few months. The past few months were a roller coaster and I ended up making the most difficult decision of my life. Still, I am grateful we had the choice. We literally could not have done it without you and your willingness to be one of the doctors in the country to perform this procedure at such a late date. I know it was such a complicated situation for you and I am so thankful that you were willing to learn all you could about the options and were closely with us to do the termination. I hope it would be of help to other woman who find themselves in similar circumstances in the future. It is hard to believe that you were willing to put up with such pressure and persecution from so many different sides, all to make sure that woman in this country still have a choice, but you do. And we literally owe you our lives for that, thank you.
Words cannot express how truly thankful I am. You made an impact on me and my family and we will remember that forever." - Anonymous
