At Clarity we get a lot of questions, but one of the more common is, “Why do you offer free pregnancy tests?” It’s a great question and one we love answering because it’s a great story about how all of our services are possible. After all, we all know that nothing is truly free and we understand you may be a bit cautious when it comes to “free” stuff.
Here are a few reasons we can offer “free” pregnancy tests.
Our Community Cares
And when we say we—we mean thousands of people in South Central Indiana. People in our communities care about women and men so much that they help fund Clarity’s services and programs. Our community trusts that we are providing accurate information and practical help to those seeking our services. So the community supports us financially and this helps underwrite our programs and services such as pregnancy tests. We want you to know that the caring folks in our communities care about your emotional well-being and health. They make it possible for you to come to us when you need to confirm an unexpected pregnancy.
We don’t depend on government funds
We’re 100% privately funded. Any grants we apply for and receive come from private family or business foundations. This means when government money dries up we don’t have to stop certain services or programs because we don’t rely on federal funds.
We have former clients who needed free pregnancy tests and are now giving back
Although we don’t expect it, or ask for it, women and men who have needed our free pregnancy tests and other services in the past have found hope through our organization. Sometimes years, even decades later, they come back wanting to help others who find themselves in the same situation and do so by either volunteering or supporting us financially.
We have amazing partnerships with local businesses and churches
We’re grateful for the organizations in South Central Indiana who support Clarity through volunteering, paying for our supplies—like our pregnancy tests, underwriting our educational programs, or paying for our marketing materials. Sometimes local businesses offer us discounts for their services and sometimes they give financial or physical gifts. Our ultrasound services, which confirm viable pregnancies after a positive pregnancy test, are a beautiful example of a gift given through the business and faith-based community. It isn’t just individuals who support Clarity, but it is also long-standing, familiar organizations that you encounter everyday.
We hope this helps answer your questions and concerns about how we can offer free pregnancy tests and other services and we want you to know that if you ever need our help we’re here for you because of the generous support of our community.
