Thank you for your interest in becoming an egg donor. At UCSF Health, we understand the needs of women who donate their eggs and we provide the information and support needed to embark on and complete this generous journey.

The UCSF Ovum Donor Program provides eggs only to UCSF patients, so both you and the recipient receive all your care in one setting. The compensation for one cycle is $14,000. This covers your time, travel and efforts and is paid at the end of the donation cycle. Many donors also benefit from knowing they have had a positive and transformative effect on the life of another person or family.

The information below will help you understand what's involved in becoming a donor. You may also wish to read more about how we screen and select donors and look at our FAQ for egg donors.
