For Egg Donors
Become an Egg Donor and Receive up to $14,000 in Compensation
Thank you for your interest in donating eggs at the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR). Every year, CHR's New York-based egg donation program helps many couples with infertility issues build families using donor eggs. These couples have, for a variety of reasons, been unable to conceive, though primarily because the women can no longer produce good-quality eggs. This is where you come in.
Most of our recipient couples have experienced significant emotional and financial strain while trying to conceive a child on their own. Without the help of special women like you, these couples may never have the opportunity to build a family. So, again, thank you for your interest.
Donating your eggs requires a significant amount of commitment, and comes with responsibilities. At our CHR-New York program, the amount you’ll earn as a donor will depend on the number of eggs you produce. Our current egg donation compensation is $8,000 if the donor produces at least 10 mature eggs (which is a historical average number of eggs that egg donors at CHR have produced).
Donors who produce more than 10 mature eggs can earn up to $12,000, and donors who are in high demand can earn up to $14,000.

About Our Program
Our egg donor program is run on the principle that we are here to serve both parties equally: We have the same level of responsibility to recipients and donors. Throughout the process, you will receive the same kind of individualized attention and clinical vigilance from our IVF coordinators and physicians as our recipient couples.
Since egg donation is a complicated medical process, we take our donors' safety very seriously. CHR covers all egg donors with a third party insurance policy, which gives you, the donor, additional security. Of course, you will incur no cost during the donation process.
Typically, our egg donors must be able to easily commute to our center in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. But if you live outside of the NYC metropolitan area and have some extraordinary qualities, and are between the ages of 21 and 29, we may consider you as a donor candidate.
In that case, most of your egg donation cycle will take place at an IVF center near you, under our supervision. You will have to travel to NYC once, for 3 nights and 2 days, for egg retrieval. If you think you are one of these extraordinary young women living away from New York City, please refer to our long-distance egg donor page.
