WHO ARE OUR DONORS?
Stork Society, LLC recruits donors from all over the United States. They are
screened in the process both physically and psychologically. Every effort is
made to ensure that they are in good health. We personally interview and
conduct background checks on each applicant to screen them for honesty,
integrity, and a sense of responsibility. They are required to substantiate
their information by providing school records, scholastic test scores,
governmentally approved identification, etc. They come from a variety of ethnic
and racial backgrounds between the ages of 19 and 34 years of age. Most are in
school working towards their career goals. Some hold advanced degrees, some
work, and some are in the military. Many have children of their own and / or have
donated previously. Most of the donors have had their lives touched by
infertility and they would like to be of help desiring children.
of our donors prefer to remain anonymous, but, would consider meeting the child
if requested to so later in life. Most of our clients prefer to remain
anonymous as well. This agency is available during the cycle for communication
between the parties if indirect contact is desired. Some donors will consider
meeting with you prior to the donation and, in that situation, we are available
to coordinate this meeting for the both of you. Please be assured that we view
confidentiality with the utmost regard and that no identifying information will
be given out about the donor or the intended parent without permission.
agency follows the guidelines for egg donation, including compensation, set by
the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The ASRM compensation guideline
states that, “Total payments to donors in excess of $5,000 require
justification and sums above $10,000 are not appropriate”. Donors will NOT be
paid over $10,000 under any circumstance.
you have viewed our Donor Registry and have selected a potential donor, a
longer and expanded profile is available for you to review. This profile gives
substantially more information than the profiles provided on the website.
Donor Profiles include:
three generation family history of the donor including medical, genetic,
educational, and occupational information
of the Donor at varying stages in her life
samples and short essays
preferences and life experiences
testing can be requested
you have expressed interest in a donor I will contact her to confirm she is
available for a cycle during your preferred time period. Unlike other agencies
we do not limit the number of expanded profiles you view nor do we charge a fee
to view the online registry. The donor is not reserved for you until you return
the signed Agency Agreement Form along with the agency fee. We will require a
brief profile from you which will (minus any identifying information) tell the
Donor something about you so she can assess if she is comfortable donating to
you. Once you and the donor are matched
the cycle can begin.
you are unable to find a suitable donor from our registry The Stork Society is
willing to conduct a personalized search in your behalf for a small fee.
Egg donation is a
unique and rewarding experience for both the parents and the donors. Our donors
experience the gratification of helping those unable to have children on their
own by donating eggs that she will not utilize. She is emotionally as well as
financially rewarded. Egg donation provides a happy outcome for the donor,
parent, and child.
