The lack of infertility insurance coverage and high out-of-pocket cost for treatments (IVF, IUI, egg and sperm donation) can be prohibitively expensive, and lack of financial resources becomes the main barrier to conceiving a child. Our grants seek to remove this financial barrier. Since 2020, we have awarded 25 grants totaling $275,000+ to qualifying families.  Our fundraising events are key to fighting for our mission. We have very little overhead (no salaries are paid), and nearly every penny of your donations directly supports our grant recipients. It is through our generous donors support that we are able to carry out our mission.   

All net proceeds go to our fertility grant program. The Stork Foundation for Infertility is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing hope and opportunity to those suffering from infertility and fighting for their dream of parenthood.  The Stork Foundation offers financial assistance to low-resource individuals who require costly medical infertility treatments that would otherwise be out of financial reach.
