Why Known Egg Donation?

At Compass Family Journeys, we facilitate known donations between intended parents and egg donors.  While there are many directions that one can take when deciding on an egg donor, we believe that honest and open communication between the parties and future offspring helps to nurture healthy relationships and transparency as third party reproduction continues to grow.

Transparency Is Key

There are different types of egg donation that are available to you.  At Compass, we believe that the best option is what we call known donation. During this process, you get to know the parents that you will be helping and will be able to keep the lines of communication open for years to come.  This potential relationship is unique, empowering, honest, and heartfelt.


Decide If You Qualify

Each clinic will have its own set of rules and requirements that will be dependent on the parents you choose to work with.  However, some of the most basic requirements are the following: Between the ages of 21 and 32, clean genetic history, lead a healthy lifestyle without smoking, drug use, or significant alcohol use, not on a birth control form not conducive to treatment and/or willing to change form of birth control. You will go through an extensive screening process to verify information given.

Know The Benefits

As a donor, you will receive compensation for your time, energy, and effort for going through this process.  The compensation amount is determined by you and agreed upon by the intended parents prior to your match call.  There are no negative financial implications to you for undergoing this process and all costs associated with the journey including travel will be covered.
