Access Fund of Aphrodite Medical
Types of Support
- Financial Assistance
The Aphrodite Access Fund provides money to help pay for abortions for residents of Central New York or Northeast Pennsylvania as well as anyone traveling to this area for an abortion.
The Aphrodite Access Fund is used primarily for patients in our office although we may offer small grants ($50 generally) to patients going to other clinics, depending on our funds. Call during business hours, 9 am – 5 pm Monday-Friday, for information about the Fund.
About Access Fund of Aphrodite Medical
The Aphrodite Access Fund was founded in the early 1990s, when the clinic began asking patients to donate a dollar for someone who couldnt afford abortion services. Eventually, the Access Fund began to help women who didn’t have money to get home, get to the clinic, or to pay for their abortions.
The Access Fund offers modest amounts of money to their patients or patients that they refer for second trimester services. Since NYS Medicaid covers abortion, much of our funding goes to Pennsylvania patients who have the Medical Card in PA.
Access Fund of Aphrodite Medical's Community
Women and their families sometimes choose to donate to the Access Fund when they visit Dr. Cousins office (Aphrodite Medical PLLC). The Unitarian Universalist Church sometimes give us money to distribute.
You can make a check out to the Aphrodite Access Fund. It is not tax deductible, but if you need a tax deduction we encourage you to donate to the NY Abortion Access Fund which also helps our patients. You can mail your donation to their listed address or call with credit card information.
