As I was contemplating donating my eggs, friends and family reminded me to never underestimate the impact that I could have on someone else’s life. By giving something so precious away to someone in need, I felt immeasurable, indescribable joy in return.

Shady Grove Fertility (SGF), one of the largest Donor Egg Programs in the country, is offering a limited time $500 offer for first-time egg donors, to compensate for their time and effort.
SGF has locations from New York to Tampa, and pre-qualifies their donors, before matching them with recipients. This means, once donors have completed their eligibility screening, which includes medical, psychological, genetic carrier screening, and genetic counseling, they will be added to the SGF donor registry, and generally matched with a recipient(s) within three weeks.
Egg donors are essential in helping thousands of individuals and couples become parents. In fact, more than 8,500 SGF patients have become parents thanks to the generosity of egg donors, whom are compensated generously by SGF for their time, effort, and commitment, not for their actual oocytes/eggs. SGF compensates its donors at various points throughout the prescreening and donation process.
“As I was contemplating donating my eggs, friends and family reminded me to never underestimate the impact that I could have on someone else’s life. Now, I feel like my life has also been forever changed. By giving something so precious away to someone in need, I felt immeasurable, indescribable joy in return,” adds one former SGF egg donor.
Under SGF’s stringent screening requirements, any woman between the ages of 21-32 who is healthy and has knowledge of her family history may be considered for egg donation. A short online application with a prompt reply identifies if a candidate is pre-qualified to become an egg donor at SGF. Once pre-qualified, all egg donor candidates must complete a comprehensive personal and family medical history questionnaire.
“We take our Egg Donor screening process very seriously. We want perspective egg donors to learn about their health, which includes genetic carrier screening, an opportunity to undergo education to review and discuss egg donation, as well as providing recipients the best possible chance at having a baby. We encourage all prospective donors to take time to obtain a thorough medical and family health history, which will assist recipients in matching with a donor,” says Michele Purcell, MHA, RN; Director of Specialty Programs at SGF.
“We take great pride in our Donor Egg Program, and strive to provide exceptional care and education to all women interested in becoming an Egg Donor,” adds Purcell.
