Welcome to the Fifth Annual National Abortion Access Bowl-a-Thon!

Abortion funds from across the country are raising money to make reproductive rights a reality for anyone who can't afford to pay for an abortionand we want you to join us! 


 
What is the Bowl-a-Thon? And what’s an abortion fund?  
The Bowl-a-Thon is a nationwide series of local events that allow community members (you!) to captain your own bowling team, participate in a kickass national event – and raise money to help women and girls pay for abortions they couldn’t otherwise afford.

Abortion funds are local, grassroots groups that work tirelessly to help low-income and disadvantaged women who want an abortion and do not have enough money to pay for it. Abortion funds help pay for abortions, help buy bus or plane tickets, and even offer a place to stay for those who have to travel for an abortion. Abortion funds make a real difference…and you can join them!

When is the Bowl-a-Thon?
Throughout the month of April. There are dozens of different bowl-a-thons (and one billiards-a-thon) in communities around the country! Find an event in your community, recruit your team, choose a brilliant and punny team name, and start fundraising now!
 
Why should I do the Bowl-a-Thon?  
  • Because you know that without resources, there is no "choice."
  • Because you want to fight back against unfair abortion restrictions.
  • Because you love being a part of building the movement for social and reproductive justice.
  • Because you’re a crack bowler who wants to strut your stuff.
  • Because you know: friends + abortion rights + rented shoes = the event of a lifetime!
Join us today as we strike down barriers to abortion access
