Support our charitable funds
Australian Choice Fund
People who are experiencing hardship often struggle to access contraceptive choices and abortion care. We work with individual donors, innovative philanthropists, trusts and foundations to provide direct support to these women and pregnant people.
We have setup the ‘Safe Abortion and Contraception Choice Fund’ (the Choice Fund) for women and pregnant people in Australia who are experiencing financial hardship and other healthcare barriers. Every dollar donated goes directly towards abortion and contraception provision. By supporting the Choice Fund someone is able to access reproductive healthcare that they may otherwise go without. Of our Choice Fund recipients in the 2017/2018 financial year:
- 100% were experiencing financial hardship
- 38% were living in coercive contexts including family, domestic or sexual violence
- 10% were Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
- 10% were experiencing homelessness
- 5% were living with addiction
Be brave and help us fund safe abortion and contraception services and contraceptive choices for women and pregnant people in Australia who are experiencing hardship.
Globally there are over 200 million women with an unmet need for modern contraception1. Marie Stopes International strives to address this need, transforming the lives of women and girls by providing them with the reproductive choices they want, where they are needed most.
Over the last 40 years, Marie Stopes International has provided life-changing sexual and reproductive healthcare to over 100 million people worldwide. In 2016, we delivered family planning, contraception, safe abortion and sexual health services to over 20 million women and men across 37 countries.
In Australia, we fundraise for our Asia-Pacific programs through our international development organisation, Marie Stopes International Australia.
