The DC Abortion Fund (DCAF) is a community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that makes grants to pregnant people who live in or travel to DC, MD, and VA and cannot afford the full cost of an abortion. DCAF is the only organization in DC that focuses solely on providing this service. Because of increasing state-level restrictions on abortion, DCAF, like abortion funds around the country, is seeing caller needs skyrocket. Donating to abortion funds helps ensure people in urgent need of abortion care now are able to access it.
