Get Involved



We provide financial assistance to low-income Rhode Islanders for reproductive healthcare and provide educational programs on related issues. We are a Rhode Island-based, all-volunteer organization. We rely on your contributions.

Donate by clicking the button below or by mailing a check to: WHEF, P.O. Box 5863, Providence, Rhode Island 02903-0841. The need for our service is quickly outpacing our capacity. More people are in need of financial support for abortion and contraception care. Please help make safe, legal reproductive healthcare a reality for all Rhode Island residents.

WHEF is a a 501(c) organization; all donations are tax deductible. We are an all volunteer organization to keep our administrative costs as low as possible.

We encourage donors to consider donating stock to support WHEF's mission and operations. If you would like to make a charitable gift of stock, please direct your broker to the following information:

Citizens Investment Services
DTC number: 0226
Account number: N6R-168211
Account name: Women's Health and Education Fund

If you intend to transfer stock to WHEF please notify us of your gift. We do not automatically receive donor information when stock is transferred to our account.

Host a fundraiser!

One of the best ways to support WHEF is to host your own house party. Hosting a house party will:

  • give you a chance to tell your friends and family why abortion access is an important issue to you
  • let people know about WHEF
  • increase awareness of reproductive health care issues in RI
  • directly raise funds for WHEF
  • have a good time with like-minded folks
  • connect WHEF with new volunteers like yourself!

Hosting a house party is simple- all you need to do is invite guests, welcome them and make a pitch for WHEF (or ask the Board to help with this part if you are not comfortable speaking), and finance the event- guacamole, hummus, whatever you fancy!

If you don't want to host a house party, there are other options! We are happy to support your house party, happy hour, Twitter fundraiser or any other benefit event; if WHEF board members and volunteers are available to come and speak at your event, we will be there. Whether you collect $20 in lieu of birthday gifts or raise $2,000 at a giant yard sale or dinner party—every event helps
