Get ready for a silly spelling spectacular that will put Scripps to shame! This isn't your ordinary spelling bee - there will be unexpected ways to save yourself from getting eliminated and keep the laughter going. Register as a speller or come spectate to support your friends, and help raise funds for abortion access while you do it.

Spellers, if you're feeling a little worried, don't fret! You can buy yourself some speller saves to stay in it to win it, even after a locution lapse! The top three spellers will win prizes and glory. But wait, there's more! Registered fundraisers have the chance to win proceeds from this event applied to your Fund-a-Thon total (i.e. ... more potential prizes at our Fund-a-Thon wrap party)!

Whether you raise $25, $250, or $2,500, participating in Fund-a-Thon helps your local abortion fund cover a meal for a client, a procedural abortion with financial assistance, or travel and lodging costs for a client from another state.

BAF's 2023 Fund-a-Thon page is open March 1 - April 30. You can:

  1. Create at team, join a team, or become a team captain. Friends don’t let friends fund abortions alone! Create a team with some of your friends, neighbors, comrades, siblings, classmates  whoever you want! Create a fundraising page through our Fund-a-Thon platform, ask your friends and family to donate – and that's it! (Bonus points for funny team names, fundraising events and perks for donors to your page, and palpable joy – and yes, there are prizes for our top fundraisers.)
  2. Become an individual fundraiser and set your goal. Did you know that $1,371 funds our helpline for one day? If you're new to fundraising, you can always set your goal low and raise it when you get close to reaching it!
  3. Don’t want to fundraise, but still want to support our work? No problem! Donate to any fundraising page in BAF's Fund-A-Thon campaign. Whether it's the cost of your morning coffee, a tank of gas, or a few new pairs of shoes, every donation makes abortion care more accessible in Maryland.

Never fundraised before? Don't worry!

Our quick start guide has suggested language, sample social media posts, video tips, and more! Keep an eye out for our emails, Instagram posts, and Tweets for more tips, tricks, and events. If you're interested in hosting or participating in an event to supercharge your fundraising, let us know!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Fund-a-Thon?

Every spring, abortion funds across the country have a fundraising campaign, Fund-a-Thon, to raise money for abortion access. Abortion funds make abortion care more accessible by providing financial and logistical support to people having abortions.

When you raise money for your local abortion fund, you're not just supporting the movement for abortion access you're also helping fund a service and volunteer network in your own community.

2. Why support local abortion funds?

Abortion access is under attack across the country, and an ecosystem of local funds helps abortion seekers everywhere access the services they need. BAF is a nonprofit organization that provides financial and logistical support to Maryland residents and people traveling to Maryland for abortion care.

In 2023, we’re aiming to raise $75,000 and make abortions as accessible as possible in Maryland!

3. How does it work? I've never fundraised before and I'm not sure where to start.
