Broward Women’s Emergency Fund

Founded in August 2003, the Broward Women’s Emergency Fund (BWEF) believes that the right to choose abortion is meaningless without access to safe, legal abortion services. We oppose all efforts to restrict abortion rights and are committed to fighting for access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including abortion care, for all women, girls and pregnant folks, regardless of income, race, age, ability, gender identity or immigration status.

Where Will My Donation Go?

At a time when our reproductive rights are increasingly under attack by anti-abortion ideologues in Washington DC, Tallahassee and across the state, your support is needed now more than ever.

Your contribution will go directly to the women who need it; BWEF members contribute their time and costs.)

We provide small grants through the three clinics we work with to help people cover the cost of surgical or medication abortion.

100% of your contribution will provide direct financial assistance to people seeking abortion care who need help covering the costs.

You can also set up a monthly donation to help make reproductive rights a reality for all Floridians.

Choose your amount and become a monthly sustainer to give the gift of access to reproductive rights in Broward County
