Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you? What do you do?
- The Wild West Access Fund is a 501(c)3 organization based out of Nevada that seeks to eliminate financial costs and other barriers to abortion care. We aspire to cover as much of each caller’s procedure as possible and all funds are redistributed directly to our callers. Beyond financial assistance, we offer other forms of practical support and can connect callers to resources before and following their abortion appointment. Learn more about us here!
Where do you get your funds from? Are they all donations?
- Great question! We rely on donations of all sizes from our amazing community to support abortion seekers. We especially love to see folks sign up for monthly recurring donations, as little as sparing $5 a month goes a long way! It helps us map out available funding further in advance. We also apply for any grants from outside organizations that we may qualify for! Basically, we fund abortion and we can’t do it alone. Donate here!
What volunteer opportunities do you have?
- We have to take this opportunity to shout out our AMAZING volunteers! Volunteers help us run our intake line, deliver after care kits, and create content for our social channels - among other things!

How have things changed for you after Roe v. Wade was overturned?
- First and foremost, abortion is legal in Nevada despite the SCOTUS overturning of Roe v. Wade. The Wild West Access Fund of Nevada remains available to assist abortion seekers with funding and practical support. Because of the attacks on abortion across the country, we have experienced an increase in requests for assistance from callers who will be traveling from outside of the state. This has offered our team the challenge of rapidly growing in service to meet the needs of abortion seekers within Nevada. With this increased demand, also comes the need for greater support as traveling for abortion care entails much higher costs than finding abortion care locally. Which means we’re going to drop that donate link one more time!
