Tips For Referring Friends To Be A Sperm Donor

Becoming a sperm donor helps families and provides a much-needed tissue donation for people to become parents. Other benefits to being a sperm donor include compensation for each donation, access to routine health checks with STI testing, and a genetic carrier screening report with 514 different genetic conditions.

Sperm donors are compensated per donation at $100 per donation and receive routine health screens. Donors are also welcome to participate in the referral program, which can earn up to $300 per friend who makes it into the program.  

Sperm Donor Referal Program

The number of people you refer to the program is unlimited, so you have the potential to earn a lot of bonuses using the referral program.

The referral program is also available if you do not qualify to enter the program yourself. This happens when a potential donor is disqualified during the application process. The referral program is a great way to earn extra income while still helping families who are looking for sperm donors.

With a shortage of sperm donors, it means a lot that you help spread the word about the importance of becoming a sperm donor.

Talking About The Program

Talking to your friends or even relatives about joining a sperm donor program can be awkward. Especially if they didn’t already know that you are a donor yourself. Here are some ways to help have this conversation:

  • Be honest. The conversation around sperm donation can be awkward at first. But if you are an active donor in the program, you find that that you get more comfortable with the donation process. Additionally, this is a tissue donation that helps support people seeking medical treatment, the same as blood, plasma, and bone marrow donations. Here is what other donors have to say about being in the program.
  • Stick to the facts. There are some myths about sperm donation that may make it sound like an unseemly type of donation. As someone who has gone through the process, you can help focus the conversation on the truths about sperm donation.  
  • Remember who needs the donations. There is currently a national shortage and families are spending a year or more waiting for a donor. Donations will go on to help families with two moms, men with infertility, and single parents without a sperm source.
  • Explain the benefits of becoming a donor. Don’t skip the benefits of being in the donor program. Each qualifying donation is compensated at $100 per donation, as well as routine health checks with STI testing, and a genetic carrier screening with 514 genetic conditions.
