Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Gift of Parenthood?

In essence, Gift of Parenthood is a charitable platform with a profound mission: to provide unwavering support to couples and individuals grappling with infertility. Our dedication revolves around empowering aspiring parents by raising awareness, instilling hope, and mobilizing resources to facilitate advanced fertility treatments, including IUI, IVF, egg and embryo donation, gestational surrogacy, and adoption.


Yet, we extend far beyond these objectives. Gift of Parenthood represents a vibrant community-driven organization, encompassing both the Gift of Parenthood Community and the Gift of Parenthood Charitable Grant Fund. Our core commitment lies in fostering open dialogues about infertility, dismantling stigma, and encouraging the normalization of seeking assistance in the realm of fertility challenges. Initiating these conversations not only provides individuals with answers but also extends a helping hand to someone else on their journey toward parenthood.

What is the Gift of Parenthood Charitable Grant Fund?

The Gift of Parenthood Charitable Grant Fund is a heartwarming initiative that aims to assist individuals and couples in their quest to become parents by providing financial support for fertility treatments. This charitable fund is primarily comprised and sustained by generous donations from the community, allowing it to make a profound impact on the lives of those struggling with infertility.
Composition of the Fund:
  • Community Donations: The core foundation of the Gift of Parenthood Charitable Grant Fund is the collective goodwill and empathy of the community. Individuals, families, local businesses, and organizations contribute monetary donations to the fund, recognizing the importance of helping others achieve their dream of parenthood.
  • Fundraising Events: To bolster the fund and raise awareness, various fundraising events are organized throughout the year. These events can include charity galas, walkathons, silent auctions, and online crowdfunding campaigns also known as "grant giveaways". The proceeds from these activities are channeled directly into the grant fund and without the generosity of the donors and our community, these giveaways would simply not be possible.

Campaign beneficiaries receive all funds raised minus these transaction fees.
You can find more information about fundraising fees in our Help Center: Fees

How can I receive financial assistance?

Infertility is emotionally and financially draining so we wanted to help future parents pave a path to parenthood by amplifying their voices and creating opportunities for conversation and open discussion.  To do this, we launched a free fundraising platform to provide tools and inspire conversation around this growing struggle.

In addition, our monthly Family Building Grant Giveaway creates a tremendous opportunity for future parents to receive up to $15,000 for their fertility treatment, surrogacy, or adoption journey.

Are single individuals and/or members of the LGBTQ community eligible to receive the award?

Yes, the Gift of Parenthood is a platform for all people! We believe in inclusivity and strive to be diverse in regards to ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, relationship status, medical history and geography.

When will the giveaway recipients be announced?

Recipients are announced on or around the 16th of every month. You can find the deadline for the current event on the grant giveaway page. Winners will be announced on the website and will be contacted via email to confirm that they have won and are entitled to a Prize.

How will awards be distributed?

Gift of Parenthood distributes the funds directly to the service provider. Unfortunately, the funds will not cover financial obligations that have accrued prior to the award, but could be applied towards treatment or service that hasn't been paid for at the time of award.

What costs are covered by the award?

The award can be used to cover any expenses associated with assisted reproduction such as IUI, IVF, egg and sperm donation, egg freezing, and surrogacy, as well as expenses associated with adoption. 

Does the award cover fertility medication?

Payment for the fertility medication may be included in the award only if the applicant’s insurance provider does not cover this cost. Payment is made directly to the fertility clinic or pharmacy.

How quickly must the award be used?

Recipient must establish as a patient/client by scheduling a consultation within 30 days of award and start treatment or adoption process within 60 days of award.

Do I have to submit a photo or go public about my infertility struggle if I win the grant?

No, you do not. We respect your choice for privacy and will always honor it. Your personal journey with infertility is deeply personal, and we understand that not everyone may be comfortable sharing their story publicly. However, we want to emphasize that the Gift of Parenthood Community & Charitable Grant Fund is built on the principle of normalizing infertility discussions. By sharing your story, you contribute to reducing the stigma around infertility, which can ultimately benefit others facing similar challenges. Nevertheless, we recognize that there may be circumstances where you need to keep your infertility journey private, and we fully respect and support your decision in those cases.


If you have any concerns about the privacy of your story or would like to discuss how we can best accommodate your preferences, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Your comfort and well-being are our priorities, and we are here to assist you in any way we can.

How much does IVF cost?

The cost of any infertility treatment such as IVF can vary depending on your circumstances and the clinic’s rate. However, in general, IVF costs can range from $8,000 to $15,000+ per cycle, plus the cost of medication.

What is the cost of fertility treatments such as egg donation, artificial insemination, and surrogacy?
