The Impact of Your Donations

October 18, 2023
The Impact Your Donations Have Made

Over the last few months, we’ve pooled our efforts into our GoFundMe campaign out of urgency to keep our center open. We were at a critical point and did not want to jeopardize the health and safety of our community by robbing them of critical services during such a chaotic time.

Our community and fellow advocates in reproductive health heard us loud and clear, affirming how crucial it is for Central Texans to have access to reproductive healthcare. With your help, we exceeded our funding goal which means our center stays open.

What Your Donations Mean for Our Community

Your donations have helped us instrumentally. We cannot say thank you enough. Below, you’ll find a breakdown of the significant effects of your participation in our fundraising efforts. Your generous donations are already impacting our center, staff, and patients. 

Our staff gets to stay

Firstly, your donations have been pivotal in supporting our payroll. This means that our employees have continued their vital work without interruption. Our valued staff gets to keep providing reproductive healthcare. 

Keeping the lights on and a roof overhead

Like ensuring our supportive and caring staff can continue their work, we needed to make sure that our center remains safe. With the funds raised, we will be directing resources toward facility repairs and maintenance to keep our center in excellent condition. Our patients deserve a safe and comfortable environment to receive care.

Tax obligations

We recognize the importance of fulfilling our annual tax obligations to maintain our compliance and operational integrity. Your support helps us meet this obligation, ensuring that we can continue to serve our community effectively and responsibly and keep our doors open. We are actively working to reduce our operational expenses to maximize the impact of your generous contributions. 

700 patients served since July

In our campaign, we urgently expressed the need for funding to continue providing critical reproductive healthcare to our patients. Services include gynecological care, miscarriage management, STI testing, pregnancy testing, sonography, and abortion referrals and follow-ups.

Your contributions have also helped us cover the high cost of stocking long-acting reversible contraceptives, so more Texans get to make the best choice for their body, at a center that puts patient autonomy first.

Since this July, we have proudly served over 700 patients with the essential reproductive healthcare services they deserve. Your help has been instrumental in achieving this milestone, and it energizes us to continue our mission. We are deeply grateful to this community for its unwavering generosity and support.

Throughout our campaign, we saw advocates, organizations, and individuals make a bold stance for reproductive health access. We are grateful to anyone who donated, shared our campaign, and who has supported our center during its almost 50-year history.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for giving our community hope. We will be launching an ongoing campaign on our website. If you can support us and share with others, we’d appreciate your support of reproductive care of Central Texans.
