Gearing up for the 2017 Game-a-Thon

National Network of Abortion Funds

We are excited to announce our biggest fundraiser for the year: Game-a-Thon!

Each year, the National Network of Abortion Funds and local abortion funds work together to raise the bulk of our annual funding in the funnest way possible. You might see NNAF and other cities talking about the Bowl-a-Thon. In DC, we participate a little differently: We play games.

This year, we’ve set a fundraising goal of $70,000, and we need you to help us reach it.

Here’s how you can participate: create or join a team, then reach out to your families, friends, coworkers, neighbors, frenemies, etc. to ask for donations. Not so sure about how to fundraise for abortions? We’ll provide you with some tips and templates to help get you started.

With help from our amazing volunteers and supporters in the community, we surpassed our goal last year—and we hope to have the same success this year!

The event will take place on Saturday, May 6 from noon to 3 p.m. The location will be revealed to participants after registration.

Get started today by creating or or joining a team! If you aren’t in the DC area, or won’t be able to attend the event in person, you can still participate! Most of our fundraising before the event takes place virtually.

Stay tuned to the blog, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter to follow along on our fundraising progress. You can also spread the word by RSVPing to the Facebook event and inviting friends.
