How much does an egg donor make?

Bright Expectations egg donors receive $8,000 to $10,000 per cycle. Many donors use this money to pursue further education, travel the world, start up their own small business, or just save for a rainy day.

How does compensation work?

You will receive a portion of your donor fee once you start injectable medications and the remaining amount within five business days of your egg retrieval.

Other benefits include:

  • Mileage reimbursements for appointments
  • If your egg donation cycle requires travel, we will provide airfare, hotel, meals, and ground transportation for you and a companion if you choose to bring one.
  • Learning about your fertility! By becoming a donor, you have access to valuable information and testing that may be helpful in planning your future.

Egg donation is fundamentally altruistic. For many of our donors, the opportunity to offer hope and help intended parents to build their families is their main motivation, beyond any financial reward. When you donate your eggs to a waiting family, you’re offering them a priceless gift: the chance to have the baby they’ve been dreaming of and longing for. You’re also dedicating time and significant effort to the process: undergoing testing and screening, taking fertility medication, and going through the egg retrieval procedure. Donating your eggs is very safe, but just like any other medical procedure, it’s not entirely without risk. When you combine all those factors, it makes sense that you deserve to be generously compensated for everything you bring to an egg donation. You have every right to ask questions about how much you get paid to donate your eggs! Fair compensation for such an intrinsically selfless decision is part of what makes egg donation such a great option for young women like you.
