Egg donors have many different reasons for donating their eggs. Each woman’s reasons are a little different. Some don’t wish to have children of their own and want to help others become parents; and there are women who simply need the money egg donation can provide.
The monetary compensation for egg donors is generally between $5,000 and $10,000. The compensation has increased in value over the past decade. About twelve years ago the average was $500. Some people will offer tens of thousands of dollars for a near-perfect donor.
