Egg Donor :: Compensation
First time egg donor compensation offered with this agency is $5,000 upon cycle completion regardless of the outcome of the donation. Though not mandatory, first time donors may potentially attract more prospective parents with a lower compensation request in order to offer a chance to 'prove' their fertility and reliability. Compensation can increase after your first donation. A multitude of factors are taken into consideration when justifying higher compensation amounts such as previous donation results, physical attributes, and education credentials (college degrees, above average IQ’s, LSAT's, or high SAT scores).
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine’s ethical guidelines state that $5,000 donor compensation requires justification and that any amount exceeding $10,000 is unethical. This agency adheres to the ASRM ethical guidelines and we ask that our donors be considerate of the intended parents when requesting compensation. Federal law prohibits the selling of human gametes. The Donor compensation is not payment for the Oocytes (eggs) themselves, but for your effort and time involved in a donation cycle as well as pain and discomfort associated with cycle medications and retrieval.
Donors will receive $750.00 - $1,000.00 at the commencement of injectable medications. The remainder compensation amount will be mailed to your home address on file within 72 hours after the retrieval procedure.
