Top 3 Factors That Determine Egg Donor Compensation

Hatch Fertility

The monetary amount a donor receives for donating her eggs, or donor compensation, can vary depending on multiple factors.

Compensation is given to a donor to do just that: compensate her for her time, energy, and emotional commitment to the fertility process. An egg donor deserves being compensated as she may experience minor possible discomfort during medical screenings, fertility medication administrations, and the short egg retrieval process. Compensation also reflects how the egg donor may become temporarily off the market for other opportunities during the fertility process.

Here’s an overview of factors our egg donor program takes into consideration to determine how much compensation will be provided upon donation:

1. Education

Education is a huge factor for determining the pay to egg donors. If an egg donor is undergoing or has completed a form of higher education, the donor is accordingly subject to more compensation. 

This is due to the high demand for educated donors within the egg donation market. This demand comes from intended parents wanting to choose a donor who is educated because it can sometimes indicate that the donor is driven, ambitious, and smart.

For instance, If you attend or did attend an ivy league school, your compensation can skyrocket. If you’ve only completed high school, your compensation, while still remaining significant, won’t be as high.

We work with so many wonderful donors without crazy high education levels, and we love those donors. There are other factors that intended parents consider and find important, so don’t let a lower education concern you. We are here to highlight what is best about you.

2. Physical Traits

In a process where intended parents can choose certain attributes or characteristics that may pass on to the embryo and baby, they often do so. However, there is no universal standard for beauty and egg donors of all backgrounds are needed. What’s beautiful about egg donation is that every donor will appeal to a set of couples trying to have a child in a different way.

For instance, a couple may choose you as an egg donor if you resemble the woman trying to have a child. Or perhaps you have the same height of the two gay men trying to have a baby. There are many reasons you might be selected as a donor, and physical traits are a factor at the top of the list.

Additionally, eye color, height, a good BMI and overall health affect donor compensation. Furthermore, a good BMI is important to many intended parents. People will pay more for fit and healthy donors, as this is what they desire for their own children. You may also make more if you have strong height genes in your family.

When asking, “How much money do you make for donating eggs?”, keep in mind that physical characteristics do matter, as they can be a determinant of health and the intended parent’s preferences.

3. Age

Your donor compensation also depends on your age as this heavily relates to your fertility levels and can affect the success of the treatment. Younger donors typically qualify for higher compensation rates because younger eggs, when healthy, are considered to be of higher quality.

We love and welcome donors of many ages. However, there is a very specific age range of women who are qualified to donate eggs based on our biological clocks.

Considering Becoming an Egg Donor?

While these 3 factors are considered in the egg donation selection process, we know there is so much more to a person. Whether you have a personal achievement that you are proud of or a talent that makes you uniquely you, all prospects are welcome to apply as an egg donor.  

Above all, our program seeks to consistently pay egg donors with a compensation that matches the worthiness of the service. This ensures that if you choose to pursue being an egg donor, you can experience the emotional reward of egg donation, while still being compensated fairly.
