EGG DONATION PROGRAM
STARTING YOUR FAMILY WITH AN EGG DONOR
When finding and selecting an egg donor, you don’t want just anyone, you want the right one. Growing Generation is here to make your search and choice easier. We’ll guide you every step of the way to help you find the right egg donor match and tell you what to expect at every phase of this exciting journey.
THE 5 STAGES OF YOUR JOUNEY
1. CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT
Your search account provides exclusive access to a database of egg donors. You can view and save donor profiles as well as receive new donor notifications. We make it easy to search for specific qualities like hair color, eye color, height, location, and ethnic background. You can search on your own or work with one of our experienced matching specialists to customize your search.
2. REVIEW EGG DONOR PROFILE
Each egg donor profile consists of the donor’s education, health and reproductive history, and family and genetic history. Learn more about each donor’s personality through photos, personal essay questions, and short videos
5. CONFIRM YOUR MATCH
After you confirm your egg donor selection, our team will send the donor’s records to your IVF clinic for your physician’s review and approval. We’ll also reach out to the donor to confirm her upcoming availability for the donation. If your doctor approves and you’re ready to proceed, we’ll send you an agreement and an estimate of the costs. Once your signed agreement and funds are received, we’ll confirm your donor match and begin the donation process which includes your donor’s medical and psychological screenings, legal contract, and IVF cycle.
4. CHOOSE AN EGG DONOR
When you find the perfect egg donor, simply click the “Reserve this Donor” button on their profile, and your donor will be placed on hold. Our team will be notified of your choice and will contact you to discuss your selection. Egg donors are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.
3. CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS
As you search for an egg donor, we’re here to help. Our team can assist with how to best adjust the filters in your search. We can also let you know about egg donors that match your preferences who are coming out of cycle or about to be added to the database. When you have a question, simply contact us at email@example.com.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIND AN EGG DONOR
Finding the right egg donor is not something that is a personal experience for every family. Among the 1,000+ parents we’ve matched, every family’s journey has been different. Once you select a profile from the database, our team will contact the egg donor to confirm her availability and send your IVF physician her records. At the same time, we’ll begin the steps to confirm your match, including creating a customized cost estimate and retainer agreement for you to review and pay within five business days of receipt.

When choosing an egg donor, we recommend you consider:
While most donors can travel to your clinic, selecting an egg donor who resides closer to your IVF clinic can be economically beneficial.
Understanding an egg donor’s health history will provide you with insight into the future health of your child. If you select a donor who has previously donated her eggs, her medical records will be sent to your IVF physician for their review and approval.
While some intended parents look for egg donors with specific characteristics or physical appearances, others want to feel a connection to the donor. That connection could be shared hobbies or interests. Perhaps the donor has personality traits like yours, or the donor bears a family resemblance. The connection is different for everyone.
