NWAAF is a volunteer-led organization. Trained, compassionate volunteer advocates make our work possible, from staffing the hotline and offering rides and homestays, to generous supporters who raise the funds we need! Get involved immediately to help accomplish our mission.

Join Our Board of Directors!

It's an exciting time at NWAAF. We’re working to build our values-led organizational culture and structure, and to create a fundraising strategy that ensures we can continue to fund abortions and build power throughout the Northwest.

We are looking for people that have lived experiences that reflect the realities of our callers, including experience with poverty, younger people, parents, and people of color. We’re also looking for people who are skilled in - or wanting to grow in - fundraising (direct asks and grant writing), program planning and evaluation, strategic planning, financial management and organizing and policy. We are placing top priority on recruiting board members from Idaho, Alaska and Oregon with an extra interest in rural candidates. You can find more information and the board application here. To apply, please fill out and submit the application to boardofdirectors@nwaafund.org by July 7th at 11:59 PM PST. We will interview candidates shortly after that deadline and hope to notify all applicants of a decision by August 3rd.

Raise money for abortion care in the Northwest!

One of the most vital ways you can help people get access to the care and support they need is to ask 5 friends to chip in to provide financial support. This can help with the cost of a hotline caller’s health care or travel needs to get to their appointment.

All the tools you’ll need to succeed are already built into the platform - in just a couple of clicks you can launch your fundraiser and share it with your friends. Once you create your fundraiser, you’ll receive three emails from us with tips to help you meet your goal.
