Fund-a-Thon 2021

April 22, 2021

Register your team, become a fundraiser, or donate: fund.nnaf.org/nraaf

Between now and May 1, abortion funds across the country are raising a collective 1.5 million. Fund-a-thon is the annual event where community members come together to raise money for local abortion funds. New River Abortion Access Fund is raising $10,000 to support abortion access in Southwest Virginia, and we can only do it with you.

Join us for #FThon21 to build collective power. Become an individual fundraiser at fund.nnaf.org/nraaf, or organize your friends and start a team on our peer-to-peer fundraising platform. We’re looking for at least 50 fundraisers to raise $200-$500 each.

On April 22, we will get together online to celebrate our fundraising efforts. The virtual event will feature live music, raffle giveaways, and more. Check back soon for more details. Prizes will be awarded to the fundraisers and teams with the most donations, highest number of donors, most creative name, and other categories. 

What prizes, you ask? Here’s a sample:

1) Original artwork by Jacki Lemon of Sweet Appalachia Tattoo, the first and only woman owned and operated tattoo shop in Blacksburg and the NRV.
2) Sex-positive art prints by Nicole Mazzeo of Pleasure Pie
3) When Women Ruled The World by Kara Cooney
4) Fund Abortion Build Power water bottle
5) Everyone Loves Someone Who Had An Abortion travel pouch
6) Stickers and buttons
7) Gift cards
8) And more…
