This rating was published 03/01/2018 and includes data from FY2016, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Originally known as the Abortion Access Project, Provide was organized in 1992 by activists and clinicians concerned about the diminishing number of abortion providers. This work, spearheaded by a group of founding members that included Susan Yanow, Marlene Gerber Fried, and Judy Norsigian, was immensely successful, and the organization grew from a state-level project to a national organization. Through a combination of local organizing, clinical training, and advocacy within health care institutions and professional groups, we expanded the number and range of clinicians and settings providing abortion in states across the country. Our current projects and project-states reflect our growing knowledge about how to move abortion access where this work is needed most.
