When considering an egg donor agency, we understand egg donor compensation can be a factor to consider. The fee paid to you as an egg donor is for the time, effort and inconvenience you will incur during the cycle. Our greatest hope is that in doing something life altering for another person – the intended parent – the compensation will open a door of possibilities for you. Many of our egg donors report using their compensation to continue educational goals, travel abroad, contribute to their favorite charitable organization, assist with the purchase of a first home or pursue entrepreneurial endeavors. These are examples of the win-win situations created when the generosity of an egg donor meets with the desires of an intended parent.
Our agency compensates egg donors anywhere between $5,000 and $10,000, which can be dependent upon a number of considerations including location, number of previous donations and ethnic diversity. During the consultation, the level of compensation will be discussed in greater detail. However, we strongly advise any potential egg donor not to apply if compensation is the sole motivation.
ConceiveAbilities strictly adheres to the guidelines as established by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine which state egg donor compensation more than $10,000 is unethical. Simply stated, a reputable agency will adhere to the guidelines and those that don’t should be viewed with extreme skepticism.
