The Feminist Health Fund believes that making decisions for your health and well-being shouldn't be decided by your bank account. Regardless of your gender identity, sexual orientation, age, race or citizenship; if you live in Greene County Ohio, identify as a woman and need assistance with health related costs please get in touch.
We hope to live in a world one day where our work is no longer required. Until that day, we're here for you.

Kelsey joined the Feminist Health Fund in June of 2022. Previously working at the Yellow Springs Pharmacy, she alerted the town when a pharmacist refused to stock or sell emergency contraceptives. Soon after he left the job, Kelsey began collecting donations and offering free emergency contraceptives. “The Free Plan B Tree” was born, and now anyone can go to the pharmacy or Antioch college nurse’s station to get free contraception. That’s when she was approached to join the board of the FHF. It has been a dream come true to help women in her community get the care they need. Since leaving the pharmacy, Kelsey now works as a news producer and continues to support women any way she can.

Elecia has worked in a variety of different roles serving people by removing barriers for those who are economically disadvantaged. Her passion is working with people with disabilities to ensure equal access.
Ann joined the Feminist Health Fund board in June 2023, inspired by the organization’s commitment to equal access to health until health is no longer a commodity.

Her recent volunteer activities have focused on health care; she completed two terms on the Friends Health Care Association board in 2022, and currently volunteers for Lifeline of Ohio, a Columbus-based organ and tissue procurement organization. Grateful for treatment received by women in her own family, Ann feels compelled to address disparity in healthcare access for others. She is honored to participate in the work of FHF.
