Egg Donor Fees
You may charge a fee for carefully following and completing the egg donation process. It does not matter whether any viable eggs were extracted. As long as you followed the medical protocol prescribed by your doctor, you will be paid your fee for your time and discomfort.
First time egg donors typically ask for a fee of $5,000. Repeat egg donors often receive $10,000 or more based on their characteristics and the successful outcome of their previous egg donations, including whether donations resulted in a pregnancy and live birth.
Our most successful donors have completed 6 donor cycles in a 2-3 year time period and have earned over $60,000.
Egg Donor Travel
It is rare for an egg donor to find a match with an IVF clinic in her home town. We will certainly do our best to speak with your local clinic to secure a match for you, however, most egg donations require an egg donor to hop on an airplane and spend up to 10 days away for egg retrieval. If you live in Canada, you may have to be present in the U.S. for 10 - 20 days, depending on how you respond to fertility drugs. Travel expenses, hotel stays and a food diem are provided.
The good news is, if you decide to become a serial egg donor, you may have the opportunity to visit many interesting cities across the country. We also recommend to prospective parents that they cover the cost for a companion to travel with you, so you can bring a friend along to double the fun.
We work with busy young professionals and college students that may only have a few weeks of time off a year, so we are very attentive to your needs. You can expect 2 days of travel for the initial appointment with your IVF doctor and then up to 10 days away from home for your monitoring and egg donor retrieval.
Once your application is approved and you meet the stringent requirements for egg donation, we diligently begin the match process. As your match agent, we work on your behalf to find matches with prospective parents that work within your busy schedule.
We enter your details into a computer database and provide access to prospective parents who may peruse your profile at their leisure. We also carefully review the requirements of hundreds of parents who are seeking egg donors at any given time. We send your profile to parents who we think might be a good match for you.
We also reach out to IVF clinics that are seeking donors with your attributes and alert them of your availability. Our staff has worked with over 100 IVF clinics across the country. It is fairly common for us to line up several matches in a row for repeat donors over a year long period.
Egg Donor FAQ

We are not medical professionals and serve only as your match agent helping connect you with parents searching for a donor with your attributes.
We leave the medical protocol education up to the IVF clinics you will work with. Every clinic is a little different, so you should do your research, inform yourself and be prepared with questions for your IVF doctor. Always talk to your regular primary doctor first to determine if egg donation is right for you.
