Meet Elevated Access

Nominated by: Karen Cotler


Their Mission:  Elevated Access recognizes that not all people have access to the healthcare they need due to stigma in their community. Because we believe everyone deserves access to healthcare such as abortion and gender-affirming care, our volunteer pilots provide free transportation to get people where they can get the care they need to live their best life.


Volunteer pilots at Elevated Access transport passengers at no cost to access the healthcare they need. Their mission is to fly people to locations where they can access abortion healthcare and gender-affirming healthcare.  They work with organizations like abortion access networks, direct support funds, and others to connect people who need travel assistance to pilots.  Elevated Access is based in Champaign, IL.

Thanks for your generous donations!
