When making your donation online, select the “Make this donation recurring” option to donate monthly via your debit or credit card. Monthly donations ensure that DCAF’s essential work is sustained year-round and allow you to support DCAF on a regular basis at a giving level that works for your budget. With consistent attacks on abortion rights being rolled out across the country, a monthly donation will help DCAF meet increased demand moving forward. Making adjustments to your monthly giving plan is easy—just email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Host a Fundraiser
Invite your friends to a house party or happy hour, host a tournament, or organize a benefit concert. Planning your own fundraiser is a great way to gather your friends, share why you support DCAF, and raise money to make sure safe abortion care is accessible to all who seek it.
The DCAF Benefit Toolkit shares tips on how to get started when planning an event, sample invitations and materials, and information for collecting donations.
Don’t forget to let us know about your fundraiser! Email email@example.com to share your event with us. We’re available to answer any questions during the planning process and, if appropriate, we can also help promote your event on social media or send someone from DCAF to speak.
“Donate” Your Birthday to DCAF
It’s easier than ever to spread the word about DCAF and raise money online. Many people choose to support DCAF with birthday fundraisers on Facebook or by directing people to DCAF’s donation page in an event description. When creating a fundraiser on Facebook, simply choose “DC Abortion Fund” as the non-profit and all funds will be transferred to DCAF when the fundraiser ends.
Pro Tip: The DCAF Benefit Toolkit provides tips for hosting in-person fundraisers, but the language included in the toolkit is a great resource for online fundraisers, too!
Sign Up for Employer Matching
Many corporations — and even some nonprofit organizations! — will match their employees’ charitable contributions up to a certain amount. If your employer has a corporate matching program, your donation to DCAF may be eligible to be doubled. Not sure what your employer’s policies are? Asking your HR department is a good place to start!
If your company requires any materials from DCAF to provide the match, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Include DCAF in Your Wedding Registry
Use your special day as an opportunity to support DCAF! We’ll create a personalized donation link for you to include on your wedding website or send to guests. Once the fundraising period ends, we’ll provide you with a list of everyone who donated so you can thank them! If you’re interested in including DCAF in your registry, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
Give By Mail
Donating via our online donation form is the easiest way to give to DCAF, but we can also accept donations by mail.
