Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Donor Network Alliance?
We are an affiliation of egg donor agencies and surrogacy programs from around the United States that is offering our collected profiles through a single, Web-based resource.
Why is DNA important?
Through DNA, Intended parents now have access, through a single website, to the donors and surrogates of many participating agencies. This puts the Intended Parents in control of the search process, allowing them to quickly and easily review the field of candidates according to the characteristics that are most important to them. There's no longer the need to contact multiple programs or be bothered with keeping track of different usernames and passwords for each. Plus, having a wider field to choose from in a single location increases the chance of finding the right match faster.
How does it work?
DNA is powered by a comprehensive online database that allows donor and surrogate programs to upload profiles of candidates. Intended parents may view these profiles, with powerful search capabilities to locate those best matching their needs. Intended parents may submit requests for more information about a particular donor or surrogate, and this request is sent on to the appropriate program. The program takes it from there.
How many egg donors populate the DNA database?
Typically, the mid-sized agency will have between 100 and 200 egg donor candidates in its database. Currently DNA has over 3,000 donors in its database and we anticipate that this number will grow significantly over time.
How many gestational surrogates populate the DNA database?
The number of available surrogates will vary greatly from agency to agency. Currently, DNA is in the process of having its members upload their available surrogates to the database and expects to have between 25 to 50 available when the surrogacy database goes live. DNA anticipates that this number will grow significantly over time.
Do people have to be clients of a participating program to subscribe?
No. When you do identify a candidate, you will work with her program. Your physician's office will be able to coordinate with your selected candidate and her program as well.
What is the charge to use DNA?
There is no charge to search for egg donors and surrogates and submit inquiries.
