CREDO will always fight for women’s rights
For more than 35 years, CREDO has fought for women’s rights, reproductive freedom, equal pay in the workplace and the empowerment of women.
Since 1985, our members have helped us donate more than $11 million to leading women’s rights organizations like NARAL Pro-Choice America, UltraViolet and Women’s March — and we’re proud to be one of Planned Parenthood’s largest corporate donors.
This Women’s History Month, we’d like to highlight for you a few women’s rights groups we’ve recently funded to learn more about their important work for equality, reproductive freedom and more.
Futures Without Violence
March 2023 Grantee
For over 40 years, Futures Without Violence has led groundbreaking programs and policy solutions to create safer homes, schools, and communities for women, children, and families everywhere. Our vision is for all individuals to have equitable access to education, safety, justice, and economic freedom.
Since 1993, our members have helped us donate $487,161 to power their critical work for families and survivors. To learn more and get involved, please visit their website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Equal Rights Advocates
January 2023 Grantee
Our grantee allies at Equal Rights Advocates fight for gender justice in workplaces and schools. Since 1974, they have protected and advanced rights and opportunities for women, girls, and gender-expansive people with free legal services, bold legislation, and community advocacy.
Since 1986, CREDO has donated $194,384 to help ERA provide free legal help to more students and workers challenging discrimination, harassment, and gender-based violence and more.
National Abortion Hotline
Grantee in September 2022
The National Abortion Hotline is the largest national, toll-free, multi-lingual abortion access hotline and patient assistance fund in the U.S. Every day, they help people access abortion care.
Last September, CREDO members voted to donate $31,391 to help support the organization’s Dr. Tiller Patient Assistance Fund, which covers travel and other practical support expenses for people seeking abortion care.

Grantee in August 2022
Our partners at Women’s March harness the political power of millions of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. They are a women-led movement working to build a feminist future.
Since 2019, CREDO members have helped us donate $180,333, most recently last August, that helped to power travel and accommodations scholarships for the Women’s Convention, so everyday women activists can build the skills and community required to create the feminist future we all need.
She the People
Grantee in August 2022
She the People is amplifying the leadership, insights, power and solutions brought by women of color across the nation. The organization is building a multiracial coalition to ensure women of color win racial justice, gender equality, and an inclusive Democracy.
Last August, CREDO members helped us donate $36,465 to support She the People’s efforts to elevate women of color as a core voting bloc and leaders of a new progressive political and cultural era.
