We Are Egg Donors was founded by three women in the United States and Canada.
We Are Egg Donors was co-founded by three women who envisioned a resource for egg donors to receive support, form community, and collectively advocate for issues that matter most to egg donors. Since then, We Are Egg Donors has formed international partnerships with researchers, academics, nonprofits, filmmakers, attorneys, and top tier media outlets to contribute to the growing transparency and understanding of egg donor concerns and diverse experiences. Today, We Are Egg Donors is an active global community of more than 1,500 egg donors in 12+ countries.
WAED provides an honest platform for egg donors around the world to connect. Our members prove that there is no "one size fits all" story for all of us.
Today, our advocacy work & community-driven approach to women's health have been featured in various media across the world.
Why we turn away $1M+ in opportunities
Since day one, we have upheld a donation policy in which we do not accept donations, sponsorship, or endorsements from any business that profits from donor eggs. This includes fertility clinics, agencies, and egg banks.
We once did the math: If we were an agency that charged $7,500 per cycle (standard fare) we would only need to facilitate 133 cycles to hit one million dollars.
Just a fraction of our community!
We love our group and care deeply for our members. We recognize the importance of having a dedicated and non-directive resource for egg donors that is 100% for egg donors, regardless of their decision to donate.
Our commitment to our donation policy not only helps prevent conflicts of interest, but it also allows us to continue growing resources for egg donors with integrity, honesty, and transparency.
And it’s the main reason why we are a volunteer-run organization.
Created and run by egg donors, our forum is a secret Facebook group. And… it’s free!
Secret is FB's most private option: not searchable or viewable to anyone but approved group members.
Founded and run by egg donors, this is the only place where you can have honest conversation with hundreds of egg donors in 12+ countries.
"I'm grateful to be a part of this community where I can speak to real women who underwent egg retrieval."
"So glad this group exists. You ladies get it."
"I'm grateful for this space and the people on it. I felt so alone before. Thank you."
