About WMF Wisconsin
WMF Wisconsin works with partners to provide financial assistance and practical support to Wisconsinites who need an abortion but cannot afford the full cost. We believe that reproductive autonomy and healthcare without stigma are essential to thriving, sustainable communities and that we must create the cultural and political change needed to ensure abortion access for all. We seek to engage supporters to destigmatize abortion, redistribute wealth, and strengthen our movement to fund abortion and build power.
WMF is a long-time active member of the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF). We collaborate closely with abortion funds, clinics, and other support networks in the Midwest, which have been vital to ensuring abortion access for Wisconsinites after the repeal of Roe v. Wade. Along with our partners, WMF is responding to a rapid erosion of clinical abortion access and the intensified criminalization of abortion in the U.S. We know that now is the time to turn more intentionally toward sustainability, accountability, and collaboration, in order to ensure compassionate care, support, and solidarity for people needing and choosing abortions.
