Help a family have a family

You have the power to change people’s lives. Become an Egg Donor with NEST.

Egg donors give the greatest gift of all:
they help others achieve their dreams of a family.

We’re honored to support the amazing and unique women (like you!) who are interested and willing to donate their eggs to others. Your donation will ultimately help people who are unable to have a family on their own while also providing you with a financial “nest egg” to help you accomplish your future dreams.

We work with compassionate, exceptional women of all ethnicities. Well-qualified egg donor candidates are altruistic young women in strong physical and mental health who have demonstrated success in their academic and extracurricular achievements. To ensure the health and safety of our donors, our intended parents, and their future families, we also have a few additional requirements which you can find below.


Qualifications to Become an Egg Donor

Motivated young women
aged 21 to 30

The Egg Donation Process

The NEST team is dedicated to supporting donors throughout every stage of the process. Once the full online application is complete, qualified prospective egg donors will be scheduled for an initial consultation. During this appointment, you will have a transvaginal ultrasound to visualize your ovaries and to determine your “Antral Follicle Count” or the number of eggs we could expect to receive in a given cycle.

You will also complete bloodwork as well as have the opportunity to ask your physician any questions that you may have about the process. If we agree that moving forward as an egg donor is a good option for you, then we will schedule your egg donation process. NEST partners with Spring Fertility to provide clinical services

A typical egg donation process is about two weeks long and ends with an egg retrieval – a safe, 20 minute outpatient procedure.

Is egg donation safe?

Yes, complications are exceedingly rare and the hormones only function on your ovaries.

Does it hurt?

Common side effects include bloating, discomfort and minor fatigue – you can think about it like severe PMS symptoms.

Will it affect my future fertility?

No! Just like birth control pills don’t prolong your fertility, an egg retrieval will not take away from your fertility. We’re retrieving eggs that would have died off normally.

Egg Donor Compensation

 Qualified egg donors will be compensated between $10,000 – $20,000 per cycle, paid after retrieval. Donors are also not responsible for paying any out-of-pocket costs during their cycle.


Our goal is to make this process as easy and seamless as possible for you. We recognize the immense selflessness required in becoming an egg donor and we will be with you every step of the way – from our welcoming waiting rooms with snacks and sparkling water, to your dedicated care team throughout the process – we’re here for you.

We also firmly believe that everyone who wants a family deserves to have one, and one of our greatest joys is helping to match egg donors with intended parents.
