      How to become an egg donor

      As an egg donor, you help potential parents achieve their goals of starting a family. You also receive financial compensation for donating. Below you can get an idea on why some women decide to become an egg donor and the requirements you have to meet to qualify as an egg donor.


      Many people dream of becoming a parent, but some need a little help to make that dream come true. Egg donors help potential parents achieve their dream. For each donation, egg donors are compensated between $5,000 and $5,500 per donation.
