We invite you to join the CASC Community Support Team.
Whether you live in Portland or beyond, have lots of time to contribute or just a few moments to spare, we want you on our team!
This is a low commitment way of joining our community and supporting our work! If you are interested, email Contact@CascadesAbortionSupport.org.
With your permission, we will add you to our “Community Support Team” email list. As a CASC support team member, you will receive a bi-monthly email with behind the scenes CASC updates.
Included in this email, you will find an up-to-date list of CASC volunteer opportunities, and other requests for support such as fundraising assistance, in-kind donation requests, questions we are seeking community advice and guidance on, etc. We know we have connections to a dazzling community and we hope you will join us in this capacity.
You will have the opportunity to offer support if and when you have the time and desire to. There is no commitment level you must meet to join our support team!
Below is a list of some of volunteer/support opportunities. If you have ideas for how you can contribute which are not included here, please email us at Contact@cascadesabortionsupport.org

Fundraising/ Grant research or writing
We desperately need fundraising support. We would be thrilled if some of our community members would be willing to take on a piece of CASC fundraising effort. We will provide whatever materials and information we have in order to help you.
Additionally, if you are in a financial position to do so, please consider making a donation to support our work. Cascades Abortion Support Collective does not charge a fee for abortion support services. The collective makes a concerted effort to support all people in the Portland area who are interested in abortion doula services. If you are able to do so, please consider donating to the collective. By donating money, you make a direct impact on the one-on-one care a pregnant person receives during their abortion.
