About Provide

Founded in 1992, Provide is a national remote-only organization working to ensure there is access to abortion. We envision an equitable sexual and reproductive health system that cares for the whole person with dignity and respect, centering marginalized communities where access to abortion care is restricted. 

 

Provide offers free professional development for healthcare and social service providers to give accurate, informed, and non-judgmental referrals for abortion care. Through training and customized technical assistance, we partner with organizations to integrate abortion referral practices into their standards of care. We see the potential for every person to play a role in ensuring accessible abortion care. We focus on five of the most critical systems of care for people of reproductive age: substance use, domestic and sexual violence, HIV, primary care, and family planning. By centering client autonomy and addressing pregnancy within the context of whole-person care, we help providers proactively and compassionately respond to their community’s needs around abortion. 

 

Provide seeks a value-aligned, driven, strategic Director of Development who functions well in a remote work environment. The Director of Development will partner with the Executive Director and other staff to attract the resources necessary to fuel the mission of Provide. This individual will oversee and lead all aspects of development, including individual, major donors, institutional giving, and corporate sponsorship initiatives.
