How to Support Us

Friends of Family Planning needs your help.  The Family Planning Clinic of Martha’s Vineyard provides essential healthcare services to Islanders. The clinic staff takes care of our women, our men, and our teens. Please help us to take care of them. Now, more than ever, we need your help.

Why more than ever? Unfortunately, this past year has been financially difficult for all of the family planning clinics in our region. Large deficits led to our entire clinic staff being furloughed for a week, and we remain worried about what the future might bring. It is at times like these that Friends tries to step forward with an even greater level of support for our clinic, but to do this we need to turn to you.  Please give as generously as you can. Our community depends on it. There are a myriad of ways that you can help support this worthy cause.
