Creating a fundraiser for charity is a selfless act on its own; however, this year, when many have tighter budgets than ever before, it’s a true act of love. For those struggling with infertility looking to build their family via IVF, IUI, surrogacy, or adoption, the financial strain is insurmountable. Moreover, for LGBTQ+ individuals and couples, reproductive medicine or adoption are their only avenues to parenthood. The average cost of IVF is nearly $12,000 per cycle in the US, with donor sperm at $750 per vial and donor egg IVF topping out at $38,000. These prices will only continue to rise with increased inflation, breaking the hearts of hopeful parents everywhere. The good news? Together we can help make parenthood possible. At Gift of Parenthood, we are on a mission to educate, inspire, and provide fertility grant assistance to those in need. With our new fundraising platform, you can raise funds that directly benefit our organization and help build families across the US. Keep reading to see just how easy it is to create a fundraiser to benefit charity.

“End The Stigma Of Infertility”
Infertility is common; in fact, it’s so common that you probably know several people that are struggling with it right now, silently. Not being able to conceive isn’t just emotionally painful; it can feel downright shameful. Those struggling often ask themselves, “Why me?” as they scroll through pregnancy announcements on social media. Although infertility is discussed more openly now than ever before in history, there is still a lingering sense of shame and a stigma that can feel nearly impossible to bear. Well-meaning comments, like “It will happen when you least expect it,” from loved ones can add salt to the wound. Even with about 1 in 8 couples struggling to get pregnant, many people still don’t know much about it or how to address it.
The non-profit Gift of Parenthood exists to cut through the misconceptions, end the stigma, and educate the community about infertility, its causes, treatment options, and the emotional and financial strain on future parents. Together, we can shine a light on infertility, give hope to those that feel alone, and empower them with resources and financial grants towards fertility treatments. Consider donating to our fundraiser to lend a hand and be part of the change.
“A Rainbow In A Storm: Help Make Rainbow Babies Possible”
If you are unfamiliar with this term, a rainbow baby is a baby born after the loss of a pregnancy or stillbirth. This term perfectly captures the notion that sometimes hope and joy are on the other side of darkness. Rainbow babies are possible through fertility treatments like IVF, IUI, or even surrogacy, but these treatments come at a cost. The torment of losing a child is enough of a burden to bear without adding on hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical debt.
With infertility treatment costs so high, they are unattainable for most couples. Isn’t it time we stepped in and did something? I am here to do something for those struggling, crying in silence, and trying to figure out what they can do to move forward. To do this, I am raising funds for the non-profit Gift of Parenthood. This organization educates, inspires, and provides fertility grants to deserving couples hoping to welcome their rainbow baby home. All of the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to this charity. I hope you will help me to support this very important cause.
