Dubey announced that she would be creating a fund to assist Texas-based employees and their dependents who were impacted by the legislation stating that "I personally, as a woman in Texas, could not keep silent" and "I am shocked that I now live in a state where women's reproductive laws are more regressive than most of the world, including India." She indicated that the fund would cover expenses for those who needed to seek care outside of Texas. She made clear that this was a personal fund, and not on behalf of Match.com.
