WHO WE ARE
Carolina Abortion Fund (CAF) is a 501-c3 nonprofit founded in 2011
by a group of clinic defenders who were tired of seeing patients delaying or cancelling their appointments just because they couldn’t afford the full cost out of post.
We believe that abortion is healthcare, and healthcare should be well resourced and accessible to all.
CAF operates a confidential, toll free helpline that provides financial, practical, and emotional support to callers in North and South Carolina trying to access abortion care. We serve all of our callers regardless of gender identity, race, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, ability, place of origin, citizenship, and all other physical or social defining factors.
We are a pro-abortion and pro-choice organization that works in partnership with reproductive justice organizations locally, regionally, and nationally to support families access to parenting, abortion, and adoption as valid reproductive options.
We are an active member of the National Network of Abortion Funds.
We believe abortion is a social good. People choosing abortion deserve compassion, dignity and respect.
We believe our practices should be rooted/grounded in a model of radical care.
We believe that income should not limit a person’s ability to make reproductive decisions.
We believe that a fierce, fearless, tenacious, risk-taking approach fuels our passionate work for abortion access.
We believe in the collective knowledge of the communities we serve and the multiple identities and experiences represented and strive to center and embody those identities and experiences in our organization.
We believe that CAF’s callers are the experts of their lives; decisions are respected, trusted with no expectation of justification.
CAF works directly with clinics to provide grants that fill the gap between what patients can afford and the full cost of the procedure. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is supported from foundations and individuals dedicated to reproductive freedom. Individual donations are directed entirely to our funding helpline and serve callers.
