About Baltimore Abortion Fund

The Baltimore Abortion Fund (BAF), founded in 2014, is a nonprofit organization that assists individuals who live in or travel to Maryland for abortion care. BAF operates a confidential helpline offering financial and logistical support to help fill the gap between what clients can afford and the total cost of their abortion care. Using an intersectional reproductive justice lens, BAF works to dismantle white supremacy by removing systemic barriers people face when accessing abortion care. BAF also actively works to reduce abortion stigma within Maryland and participates in the broader conversations shaping local and state-wide policy affecting our clients.
