Celebrate Planned Parenthood

Through the changing landscape in reproductive health care over the last year, one thing has remained constant—our commitment to reproductive health and freedom.  

When you give to Planned Parenthood North Central States, you are supporting the nearly 100,000 patients who turn to us for STI tests, telehealth, birth control, vasectomies, cancer screenings, abortion, and gender-affirming care. Whether it’s through care at a health center, education in the classroom, or advocacy in the community, everyone who turns to Planned Parenthood is better off because of you. 

As we continue to strengthen our freedoms in health care, let’s come together for a fun evening of connection with new and old friends as we reaffirm our commitment to our community.
