$15,000 Goal


Your support means that Trans and Non-Binary people will  access the medically necessary care that they need and deserve. No amount is too small! 


Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 and we know that we can do it with your support!


For over seven years, The Virginia League for Planned Parenthood has served patients through our gender-affirming hormone treatment (GAHT) program.  Since our beginning we have served over  4,000 patients in our GAHT program. The program is Trans and Non-Binary led as well as developed by Trans Individuals.  For us, by us!  In addition to hormone therapy, we also provided many other services to Trans and Nonbinary individuals. We believe strongly that Trans health is health care  for the whole self! Demand continues to grow for our services and in 2022 alone, we saw over 2,500 Trans and Non-binary patients.


Since we began our Gender Affirming Care Fund in 2021 we have assisted almost 100 patients with financial support because of donors like you! We could NOT do this without you! Your donation to this fund will support patients with: medication costs, transportation to medical appointments, groceries, emergency housing, gender affirming clothes, updating legal documents, therapy, gender affirming procedures and more!


At VLPP, we believe that no patient should have to choose between securing essential healthcare, like hormones, and paying for groceries, an electric bill, or rent. As  patients continue to face rising gas, food, housing prices, and increased costs of other survival needs, our financial support program remains in high demand.   Transgender and non-binary people continue to withstand discrimination and unprecedented attacks against their bodily autonomy, especially here in the South.  Almost 500 bills targeting LGBTQ people and their rights have been introduced across the country in 2023 alone. Virginia remains one of the few  states in the South that does not have any bans on gender affirming care.  During this critical moment, we are committed to offering safe and welcoming care for this community as well as financial support as we are able to. 



Your support today will help! Take a look at our Patient Feedback tab to read exactly what these critical services mean to our patients as well as feedback from patients who have received funding  as a result of your donation!!!
