What is an ID Option donor?

Our ID Option Donor Program gives egg donors the option to release their identity and contact information to the donor-conceived child when that child reaches the age of 18 and requests that information.

Here’s how it works:

  • An egg donor may choose to be anonymous or elect for the ID Option.
  • If an egg donor chooses the ID Option, she agrees to allow us to release her identity and contact information only to the donor-conceived child, not the recipients of donor eggs, once that child reaches the age of 18 and requests the information.
  • The recipients of the donated eggs decide whether they want to choose an anonymous or ID Option donor. Even if the recipients choose an ID Option donor, they may still elect that the donor remain anonymous.
  • Once you’ve chosen to be an ID Option or anonymous donor, you may not change your mind as this may be an important factor in the recipient’s donor selection.
