MSI-US has launched an exciting new funding initiative to help address the impending resource gap created by the re-introduction of the Mexico City Policy.

The Blue Door Fund aims to reach new donors who can help support the work of Marie Stopes International, and calls on them to 'open the door' for women and girls around the world by supporting their access to contraception and safe abortion services. The campaign uses captivating imagery and video, and at the heart of it all is the iconic blue door of our centres – a powerful symbol that represents our enduring commitment to women all over the world.

In 1976 Marie Stopes International opened its first clinic and, though our blue door, women found a welcoming place to access quality family planning services. Since then, our Blue Door has grown to become an unwavering sign of care in 37 countries around the world.

Throughout our 40-year history, we have used flexible and responsive funding to drive innovative programmes that make a real impact for vulnerable women, girls and communities. Today, more than ever before, there is a critical need for this funding. Dramatic cuts by US policymakers to global family planning and foreign aid will make it difficult to maintain - let alone expand - our life-saving services.

By joining our Blue Door Fund, donors can support our unique programmes and directly impact the lives of the clients we serve.

If you would like to learn more about the Blue Door Fund and make a donation, please visit the MSI-US website: You will be able to make an online donation even if you do not live in the United States.
