Are my gifts to PPSNE tax deductible?
Yes. PPSNE is a 501(c)(3) organization and your gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
How will PPSNE use my contributions?
Your contributions will support the general operations of PPSNE. They are especially important to help us provide healthcare to women, men and teens who cannot afford to pay for all or part of their care, don't have insurance or don't receive Medicaid. Your gift will also support our education and advocacy programs.
Are Planned Parenthood of Southern New England (PPSNE) and Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) one and the same?
No we are not. PPSNE is an affiliate/member of PPFA. Here at PPSNE, we provide reproductive health care in 19 health centers across Connecticut and Rhode Island, as well as sexuality education and advocacy. PPFA is a national organization and does not provide direct medical services. PPFA does set medical standards for all Planned Parenthood affiliates in the United States and, in so doing, ensures the high quality health care offered by its affiliates.
What happens after I make my first gift to PPSNE?
All of us at Planned Parenthood of Southern New England truly value your support and want to make sure that you get regular updates about the important work that you help fund. Three times a year, you'll receive Focus - our informative newsletter as well as an invitation to a special event in your area or an occasional special opportunity. You can also expect to get communications from us several times a year. If you have provided us with your e-mail address, you will receive updates on our programs and services from time to time.

Does PPSNE sell names of supporters?
Never. However, from time to time PPSNE may exchange lists with other like-minded nonprofit organizations. This helps us reach out to more caring people like you who may be interested in supporting our work. If you prefer that we do not exchange your name, just let us know and we will honor your wishes. Call the Development Office at 203-865-5158.
What else can I do to help?
While financial support is always crucial, we have many interesting volunteer opportunities that can be matched to your interests and availability. These may include special events or administrative support. If you know of others who might be interested in volunteering or supporting PPSNE with a contribution, just call us or send their names and we'll get in touch.
