Thanks to generous donations this past year, more than 70,000 patients received life-saving health care from Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL) in 2019. 

Yet there is still much more to do! With your support, we can expand our services in 2020 to reach even more people and communities who need us most.

Give the gift of non-judgmental, compassionate care, and make a donation to PPIL.

 

TOP 5 WAYS YOUR DONATION HELPS PPIL

  1. Accessing birth control should be as easy as ABC! Launched in January 2019, eligible patients can receive free birth control through the ABC Initiative at any PPIL health center. 

  2. Young people are taking control of their sexual and reproductive health. PPIL’s Chicago Healthy Adolescents and Teens (CHAT) program brought sex education, one-on-one counseling, and free sexually transmitted infections (STI) testing to more than 12,000 youths last year. 

  3. High-quality health care should not be determined by your zip code. The Planned Parenthood Direct app now allows patients to get birth control and UTI medication on their phone in just a few clicks. 

  4. Cementing Illinois as a haven for reproductive rights in the Midwest. PPIL celebrated the enactment of the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) in 2019, ensuring access to abortion care is a fundamental right in Illinois. 

  5. College students are educating their peers on reproductive rights. At eight college campuses across the state, PPIL’s GenAction chapters are organizing, tabling, and hosting events to connect their peers to services at local PPIL health centers.


    Your support empowers PPIL to take bold action and create a stronger and more equitable Illinois for all. Thank you for chipping in during this season of giving! Whether it is $5 or $500, your generosity fuels our passion and energy, and allows us to continue to dream big in the years ahead. Click here to make your holiday gift.
