Do you want to make money for RRFP, so we can fund more abortions and full-spectrum doulas??
We love you already!
Annually from February to April, RRFP participates in the National Network of Abortion Fund's Bowl-a-thon, a statewide fundraising season that ends in an awesome celebratory and prize-filled, game playing, dancing party. Join as an individual or make a team of friends -- we'll provide all the support and training you need to do some high velocity fundraising!

Join us to #FundAbortionBuildPower in 2021. March 5th,2021- April 22nd, 2021 are the dates this year. Your participation could be the difference between someone getting the abortion they need and being forced to go without.
Send a message that you believe we all should be able to access abortion because no matter how much money we make or where we live.
The theme this year is Plarenthood which is the act of encouraging things to be and bloom. Choose a plant or flower to rep your team and watch it grow! All events are virtual this year so let's get our creative juices flowing! Some ideas for virtual events that your team can do are:
- Open mic night
- Happy hour
- Game night
- Craft party
- DIY party
- Art class
- Photo editing class
- Dance party
- Yoga or fitness class
- Movie watch party - Netflix party (chrome extension)
- Illustrate + pay 💰
We will have an awesome Earth Day Weekend and ending to #FAT2021 April 23rd- April 25th so stay tuned for that information!

How do I get involved? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Start or join a fundraising TEAM HERE!
Basically, the FAT is an event where RRFP (and many many other abortion funds across the nation) ask people in our communities to spend time from February through April fundraising on our behalf. We ask that you gather a team of people you want to work with, take what you already love, and make it into a fundraiser to meet your fundraising goals! At the end, we gather for a big End of BAT party and celebrate the amazing work we’ve all completed: we dance, we play games, we eat, we give out prizes, and RRFP lives to see another day :)
Where does the money go? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It all goes to RRFP, except for a small portion that’s shared with the National Network of Abortion Funds for credit card processing fees and helping us coordinate this national event. Almost all of RRFP’s annual budget comes from FAT!
Money goes to funding people’s abortions, logistics to support abortion access (travel, lodging, childcare), supporting other grassroots reproductive justice orgs like the Richmond Doula Project, and more!
What’s the goal? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
$50,000 is what RRFP needs to maintain our current abortion funding and full-spectrum doula budget. Anything over $50k goes towards funding paid positions to keep RRFP's work sustainable, which will allow us to support even more Virginians to get the healthcare they deserve.
We’re looking for 125 fundraisers to raise $400 each-- that’s just $37 a week until FAT season is over at the end of April!
How do we get the money to you? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Card donations can be made directly to your personal fundraising page, after you register.
We also accept cash and check donations! Email [email protected] to arrange a pick-up.
