When a woman decides she wants to learn about egg donation, there are a variety of ways she can start the process. As one can imagine, there is plenty of information only a click away on the internet; however, one of the best connections she can make is with a reputable egg donor agency that has been in the industry for a decade or more. An agency with experience and stability will have a protocol in place that is professional, thorough, and above all, compassionate.
When a woman decides to become an egg donor, she helps individuals and/or couples become parents. Intending parents who have wanted a baby for so long think of little else, and egg donors can help make those parenthood dreams come true.
While egg donors are needed to help achieve these goals, there are in fact particular types of egg donors which are considered high in demand.
At the top of the demand list are women who are of Asian descent. While a 100 percent full ethnicity of Chinese, Japanese or Korean heritage is extremely sought after, those who have a partial Asian heritage are also encouraged to apply to reputable agencies.
The reasons as to why a donor of Asian heritage is needed vary, but as one can imagine, a higher compensation is offered to these women so they can help infertile Asian individuals and couples who want to build their families. Standing up for equality, many Asian donors want to assist gay men and those in same-sex relationships become fathers so they too can experience the love of a child.
Egg donors enrolled or have graduated from Ivy League colleges or top ranking universities are also in high demand. They too are eligible to receive higher compensation due to their academic status and accomplishments.
Samples of Ivy League or leading universities include but are not limited to the following:
- Princeton University
- Harvard University
- University of Chicago
- Yale University
- Columbia University
- Stanford University
- Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Duke University
- University of Pennsylvania
- Johns Hopkins University
- Dartmouth College
- California Institute of Technology
- Northwestern University
- Brown University
- Cornell University
- Georgetown University
- University of California-Berkeley
- University of Southern California (USC)
- University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
Reputable egg donor agencies compensate egg donors generously, particularly those who are of Asian descent and/or have reached a specific academic status. However, many donors agree that being part of the process in helping people build their families through third-party reproduction is the most rewarding part of all.
