Surrogacy Grants and Financial Assistance

Surrogacy grants and financial assistance

Intended Parents looking for options to cover the fees for surrogacy can research grants and financial assistance programs. Several nonprofit organizations offer scholarships to help finance infertility treatment, including surrogacy.

Applying for grants will take some work, however. Depending on the nonprofit, you must complete an application, write a personal essay, and demonstrate financial need. Most organizations also require an application fee of $50-$100 to cover administrative costs.

Not many groups specify surrogacy as a covered treatment, but you can ask if they will pay for surrogacy expenses or if you can apply for monies to cover the IVF treatment as part of the expenses.

We have listed organizations that allow recipients to receive treatment anywhere in the U.S., though they may require recipients to live in specific areas of the country. Also, recipients must be U.S. citizens.

We urge you to read each group’s website carefully to see if you qualify.

Baby Quest Foundation

The Baby Quest Foundation offers grants to surrogacy recipients. Founder Pamela Hirsch started the nonprofit after her daughter’s surrogacy journey.

From its website:

Grant eligibility depends on the applicant’s circumstances (i.e. underlying cause of infertility, financial situation and other life factors) and their meeting a set of requirements, …. Note that Baby Quest does not reimburse for treatment already begun.

We strive to be diverse in regards to ethnicity, sexual orientation, and geography. Grants are available to singles and couples, both same-sex and heterosexual.

The Fertility Foundation of Texas

Central Texas residents receiving treatment from a SART-affiliated clinic, like CACRM, can apply.

The Hope for Fertility National Grant

From its website:

We established our National Grant to help couples overcome the financial difficulties that come with infertility treatments. The frequency and amount of grants is based on the availability of funds raised throughout the year. Typically grants are awarded once a year, but may be more or less frequent. Grant amounts typically range from $250 to $10,000.

The Cade Foundation

The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation was named after the grandmother who was a surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law. Doctors Camille and Jason Hammond created a foundation in her name to encourage patients to give back to the infertility community.

According to its website:

The Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Family Building Grant is an annual award that provides up to $10,000 to needy, infertile families. These grants assist with the costs associated with infertility treatment or domestic adoption. Family Building Grants can take the form of a cash award that is payable directly to the clinic or agency or a medication award that will be sent to the fertility clinic of the recipient. The grants are available for medical treatment of infertility and child adoption. The fertility medication grant is provided through a generous donation from EMD Serono.

AGC Scholarships

From its website:

The AGC Hope Scholarship, established in 2010, will make it possible for individuals who do not have the financial resources the opportunity to fulfill their dream of becoming parents. Applicants will be asked to complete a confidential application describing their infertility history, personal situation and financial need.
