$10,000 Matching Donation for Catholics for Choice
Catholics for Choice is issuing the Catholics for Choice Matching Gift Challenge to support the women of DC and assist the DC Abortion Fund (DCAF) in its critical work. Women in the District of Columbia need your help—and we’re asking you to give now as generously as you can. By participating in this challenge, your gift will mean twice as much.
As Catholics, we are called upon to speak up and show our compassion for the poor. Our faith guides our commitment to social justice, including reproductive justice. CFC condemns using the reproductive health of low-income women in Washington, DC, as a bargaining chip to reach a budget agreement. When Congress chose to prohibit the DC government from distributing its own local funds to pay for poor women’s abortions it made an unconscionable decision.
Through the CFC Matching Gift Challenge, all gifts to CFC designated for DCAF will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $10,000, by CFC. The challenge starts today and continues through April 30, 2011.
DC women need our help and DCAF will deliver it. Ninety-five percent of DCAF’s income goes directly to provide funding for abortion services. Your gift—doubled by CFC—will reach the women who need our help. Your contribution will ensure that no woman in DC is denied the right to follow her conscience because she cannot afford an abortion.
Make your secure gift online through Network for Good and designate your gift for DCAF. Congress may not care about reproductive health, rights or justice for women in DC, but we do—and we know you do, too. Take the challenge, and stand up for what’s right.
