How to Find a Jewish Egg Donor
For Jewish prospective parents, finding the right egg donor may pose the additional challenge of being matched with a donor who meets the heritage and genetic lineage requirements that are most important to them. Modern family building through third-party reproduction provides Jewish parents with this very opportunity, and Egg Donor America is happy to help find every prospective parent’s ideal egg donor.
We are sensitive to the desires of future parents in need of a donor, and we will work with you to find a Jewish egg donor who is the best fit for your needs.
Why is it difficult to find a Jewish egg donor?
The more specific and restrictive the requirements put forth by prospective parents, the more difficult it can be to find an egg donor. This may be compounded when religious and genetic lineage are added to the list of qualifications.
While most rabbinic authorities allow egg donation and Jewish gestational surrogates, there is a divide as to whether a future parent really “needs” to find a Jewish egg donor. For example, the Conservative and Orthodox movements firmly believe that an egg donor should be fully Jewish whereas the Reform movement does not hold this requirement in order for the child to be considered Jewish.
Where can I find a Jewish egg donor?
Egg Donor America proudly boasts a database of more than 1,000 qualified egg donors. We encourage prospective parents searching for a Jewish egg donor to register with Egg Donor America to view our database and begin searching for their ideal donor. We encourage future parents to also contact Egg Donor America directly in order to discuss their search.
Will using a Jewish egg donor require a higher fee?
Egg donor compensation typically ranges from $4,000 to $10,000. Instances in which this fee can fall within the higher end of this spectrum include egg donors who have donated previously, egg donors who are in high demand, or egg donors with exceptional qualities. It is possible that Jewish egg donors may fall within the qualifications which call for higher compensation.
