We are pleased to share with you that Women for Women’s name has officially changed to Chelsea’s Fund. Careful consideration, broad input, and quite some time went into this decision. While we definitely have historical and emotional attachments to the original name chosen by our founder Chelsea Kesselheim, we believe that this name change better reflects our mission as we move forward. Our key considerations in reaching this decision included:
- We recognize reproductive healthcare as an issue that impacts all people and all families. We want our name to be inclusive, acknowledging that people of all gender identities both support us and may be directly served by us.
- We wish to avoid confusion with the similarly named organization, Women for Women International.
- In selecting our new name we chose to honor Chelsea, our founder, and to use her name as a reminder of the spirit, determination, and passion for a more just world that mobilized Chelsea and so many others who have gone before us.
We are revising our informational materials and website to reflect this change. Our mission and vision remain the same, as do our address and phone number. Donations may continue to be made as described on this website. We celebrate the positive change we have been able to make in many lives through your continued support and the dedicated work of all those who volunteer their time, energy and expertise to help Wyoming residents access the abortion care they need. We are tremendously grateful for the role each of you plays in this group endeavor. As always we welcome your input and inquiries.
