Ensuring access to abortion in Wisconsin since 1972
Who We Are
Founded in 1972 as Women's Medical Fund, Inc., WMF Wisconsin has supported Wisconsin residents in paying for abortion care for over 50 years. A volunteer-led, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, WMF Wisconsin also educates and organizes for abortion access.
The entire current board of WMF Wisconsin board of directors shares a commitment to gender inclusion, and we seek to hold ourselves accountable to supporting abortion access for people of all genders. We are in the process of changing our name to reflect that. As of this year, we have been trying to use only the acronyms “WMF” or “WMF Wisconsin” in our written communications, until we have a chance to do a full re-name and re-brand. However, we recognize this is not reflected everywhere in our website and other materials. We also know that it’s not just about changing gendered language; we need to continue to learn and grow our gender justice practice.
WMF is a member or partner organization of:
