Share the Benefits of Birth Control with Others

A map of the US with the words, "BCBenefits is now available coast to coast. Help us fill the fund."

Do you love the freedom that comes with using a birth control method that works for you?

Birth control is directly linked to a wide range of benefits to women, men, children, and society, including fewer unplanned pregnancies. Using birth control allows people to plan for a family on their own terms and gives them the power to decide their own destinies. And we know that the majority of adults—regardless of race/ethnicity, region, and political affiliation—believe that birth control should be considered a basic part of women’s health care.

Yet, nearly 20 million low-income women across the country don’t have reasonable access to the full range of birth control methods because they live in contraceptive deserts.

To fill these gaps and reduce barriers, we created BCBenefits. A contraceptive access fund, BCBenefits supports women’s power to decide if, when, and under what circumstances to get pregnant and have a child. The fund helps women with low incomes overcome some of the most commonly-faced barriers in access to contraception.

We built BCBenefits around the belief that all women deserve access to contraception. A gift of $50 to BCBenefits provides a woman with a 12-month supply of birth control. If you believe as we do that all women deserve access to affordable health care, please donate so that another woman can love her method like you do yours.

Since launching nationally in April 2019, BCBenefits has helped more than 2,000 people receive a year’s worth of birth control for free. These people live in all 50 states and Washington, DC, and happy users have told us:

“Now I don’t have to worry about pricy doctor visits and paying for birth control pills of out-of-pocket. This is an amazing program for uninsured women with needs.”

“Offering to give me my birth control like this makes me want to cry for joy. Less of a thing I have to worry about…So that only when I'm ready I can have kids. A truly great service to us women.”

Do you want to ensure everyone can access the birth control that’s right for them?

We invite you to help reduce the barriers women face accessing their preferred birth control method by donating today. And spread the word: the more people like you who know about BCBenefits the more we can create change.
