Resources for Abortion Delivery is a left-of-center abortion advocacy organization that works toward easier access to abortions, particularly for poor and low-income women. [1] Resources for Abortion Delivery is a project created in 2016 by the Hopewell Fund, a funding and fiscal sponsorship nonprofit managed by the Washington, D.C.-based consultancy Arabella Advisors.

Activities

Resources for Abortion Delivery has created various programs to support abortion and pro-abortion advocacy, including the Regulatory Assistance for Abortion Providers (RAAP), a program that provides legal and regulatory advice to abortion providers, and a Loan and Grant Program that provides financial support to abortion providers. [2]

Resources for Abortion Delivery is one of nearly one hundred “ally organizations” aligned with Abortion Care Networks, an organization that supports abortion providers. [3]

The Abortion Law Project, a collection of legal datasets, maps, and data on state laws regarding abortion services, was created through a collaboration between the Policy Surveillance Program at Temple University’s Center for Public Health Law Research, Guttmacher Institute, Resources for Abortion Delivery, American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Reproductive Rights, National Abortion Federation, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. [4]   

Staff

Resources for Abortion Delivery has eight full-time employees who are located across the country. [5] According to Hopewell Fund’s 2018 federal tax-exempt form, Meagan Cavanaugh was Hopewell Fund’s project director, for which she received $234,178 in total compensation. [6] She is the highest paid project director within the company, among the five project directors listed. As of January 2020, according to Cavanaugh’s personal LinkedIn profile page, she is the managing director of Resources for Abortion Delivery, and has been in this position for nearly four years. [7] Previously, she worked for Planned Parenthood Federation of America for nine years and before that as a research manager for the Guttmacher Institute. [8]

Janet Crepps is the director of Regulatory Assistance for Abortion Providers[9] and according to her personal LinkedIn profile page, she is a director at Resources for Abortion Delivery, where she has worked since November 2018. [10]

[11] In September 2017, for a period of 24 months, the Hopewell Fund received $400,000 for the support of Resources for Abortion Delivery from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. [12] An additional $750,000 was given to Hopewell Fund for other activities, not specifically for Resources for Abortion Delivery. [13] In 2017, for a period of 24 months, $60,000 was given to the Hopewell Fund for allocation to Resources for Abortion Delivery by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. [14]
