Types of Support
- Financial Assistance
If you are seeking information or funding for abortions, please know that abortions are now considered illegal in Wisconsin. After Roe vs Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court in June 2022, an old Wisconsin law from 1849 came into effect. This law now makes it a crime for a provider to perform abortions in our state but not for a resident seeking to have an abortion. Lawsuits may change this situation in the future. As a result of this law activation, no clinics in Wisconsin are performing abortions at this time but may be able to assist you with scheduling one in Minnesota or Illinois, where abortion is still legal. Or, you can reach out to clinics in those states directly.
If you decide to terminate a pregnancy, call a clinic for an appointment as soon as possible. Don’t delay as abortion costs will increase as the pregnancy advances. When scheduling the appointment, inform the staff that you need financial assistance and they will let you know what type of support is available. This could be support for the procedure, travel and overnight expenses, etc.
The Freedom Fund offers grants to many clinics in IL and MN to be used for financial assistance when an appointment is scheduled for residents from central and northern WI. If you schedule an appointment at a clinic that does not directly receive money from our fund but are a resident of our central and northern WI service area, then please reach out to us at 715-384-3360 and leave a message. One of our volunteers will do their best to return your call within 24 hours to assess your situation and answer your questions.
About Freedom Fund
The Freedom Fund is an all-volunteer organization established in 1997 to assist residents of Central and Northern Wisconsin who are seeking to terminate a pregnancy but can not afford the entire cost of the procedure/visit. The Freedom Fund partners with organizations to ensure that residents of Wisconsin seeking abortions have access to information, support and financial assistance. We also offer grants for long-acting reproductive contraceptives, like IUDs and implants. This support is made available with grants and the generous financial support of many donors.
Freedom Fund's Community
The area that the Fund serves (Central and Northern Wisconsin) is primarily rural with a prominent and vocal conservative and religious base. Because of this, it is a challenge to reach out to the community to increase our donor base and to provide information.
The Freedom Fund is always looking for passionate and committed volunteers. Call and leave a message to find out how to get directly involved at 715-384-3360. One of our volunteers will reach out to you.
Consider a donation to the Freedom Fund. Raising money for abortion is critical, especially as expenses have increased for our residents that have to travel outside of Wisconsin to access these crucial reproductive services.
