RRFP Updates

We've been busy over the past year, doing a lot of internal work to best support clients, each other, and new volunteers!

Some Highlights:

  • We have a newly designed website
  • In January, we hosted a week of events in honor of the 41st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
  • For the BAT 2014 fundraising season, we raised a total of $29,364.76-- thank you so much to our tireless, amazing volunteer fundraising champs!
  • RRFP Clients
    • In 2013, we funded 114 abortions!
    • Last month, we had 21 clients call us!
    • We did our first internal needs-assessment report.
    • We streamlined and digitized our client intake process.
    • We expanded our capacity for client practical support, so we can better help folks with housing during their procedures, rides to clinics, clinic escorts, and other essential accessibility needs during their abortion.
  • We tabled at RVA Zinefest, made a new Resource Guide zine, and facilitated our Choice Your Own Adventure Workshop.
  • RRFP has been a member of the Richmond Area Sexuality Network (RASN) for a lil over a year now.
  • We learned new skills at conferences! We went to the East Coast Abortion Fund Summit, GIFT Money for Our Movements Conference, CLPP, Take Root, the Allied Media Conference & Seattle Birthwerq Project QT2POC Doula Training.
  • OUR House held a house show fundraiser for us that raised over $900!
