The Reservation fee is due when you choose a Donor and she confirms her willingness to donate. It is paid prior to additional information requests being made of your donor, prior to any contact with your Donor (meetings, phone or skype calls, at your request and Donor’s consent) and prior to medical records being obtained on your Donor or to information being sent to your clinic.The Retainer Fee, paid in 2 installments, includes matching Intended Parents with an Egg Donor, psychologically and medically screening said donor, screening donor with MMPI test by request (at IP’s expense for screening, psychological review and MMPI), arranging for the drafting and review of the donor contract, coordinating and booking all travel arrangements, and managing the escrow account. We can also coordinate payments for monitoring clinics from your escrow account, and arrange contact between you and your donor, if requested and consented to by Donor.There are no hidden fees, all services necessary for your Egg Donation are included.

Why should you choose Simple Donations?
Simple Donations is a full service Egg Donor agency. We do not have any hidden charges or tack on additional fees. You will only pay the full fee once your donor has passed screening and is ready to cycle for you!
No Application Fee
No Application Fee – Simple Donations does not charge any application fee. Phone consultations are free, and you can browse our database for no charge and with no obligation. In order to provide the highest level of service to retained clients, our services before you become a client are limited. Once you have browsed our database and identified donors who meet your requirements, please select to make your choices final. At that time, our staff will email you to welcome you and inform you of the next steps. We will contact your donor choices to verify their availability to donate. Unfortunately, we cannot do more than verify their ability to donate before you sign our retainer agreements. If you will require additional information or services by our staff above our extensive profile before selecting your donor, we can work with you to negotiate a fair compensation for the additional services. Please inquire if you know that you require additional services above checking on a donor’s availability, such as a skype call, meeting, or additional donation or medical information. Once your donor has agreed to donate for you, and you are ready to move on to having her screened at your clinic, we will then request that you sign our retainer, submit to a background check, and pay our initial retainer fee. The bulk of our agency fee is not due until your donor passes screening at your clinic and is preparing for a cycle.
No Travel Coordination Fee
No Travel Coordination Fee – We will coordinate your Donor’s travel to the clinic, and oversee her monitoring appointments included in our fee.
We never take 10% of the Egg Donors’ Compensation
We never take 10% of the Egg Donors’ Compensation – Simple Donations donors receive their full donor fee. We believe that taking 10% of the donor’s compensation only leads to donors requesting higher donor fees! We do not tie our agency fee to our donor’s compensation.
