Circle of Friends: Monthly Donors Provide a Lifeline to Women and Girls in Need

Bonnie Catena supports USA for UNFPA because she knows that it will take a sustained commitment to reach the day when women are free to decide whether and when to have children.

In addition to providing reliable support that enables USA for UNFPA to plan more efficiently, Bonnie gives monthly because she is reminded of the impact of her generosity each time her gifts are processed:

“Every month, I know I’m helping a woman plan her family. I’m protecting a girl from child marriage. I’m making sure that an expectant mother survives childbirth,” Bonnie says.

“UNFPA provides the resources women need to control their bodies and plan their families. That requires sustained support, which is why I give monthly.”
