As an egg donor, you give hope to so many intended parents who may otherwise never have the chance to bring a child into their family. You also provide real opportunities for gestational carriers during the collaborative reproduction process. Your compensation for your gift will also open opportunities for you. Therefore, it is important to choose a reliable escrow agency to manage this process for you.
Egg Donation is a one time process that takes less time than surrogacy, but the sacrifice is still immense. SeedTrust expedites this transaction quickly, reliably, and confidentially to ensure that your needs are met at every turn.
SeedTrust even goes the extra mile to provide egg donors with all of the necessary forms and documentation they may need for their taxes and any record-keeping.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens to my account and client portal when the engagement has ended?
We will not close the account until all parties certify that all monies have been paid and that nothing more is due to be paid or reimbursed. Once we have written confirmation from all parties, we prepare and refund the account funds via check or ACH/Wire Transfer.
Your client portal will remain active for 90 days after your account has been closed allowing you to access and download all documentation. Should you need to access your documentation after 90 days, you can do so by contacting our office, as SeedTrust® maintains files for three years after the contract has ended.
How is the SeedTrust process different?
Surrogates and Intended Parents have become accustomed to the complicated, antiquated and frustrating process of the industry’s current escrow experience. From the lack of communication to only receiving documentation after multiple requests to inconsistent payment schedules, both Intended Parents and Surrogates waste valuable time and even money.
Using SeedTrust® for your escrow needs introduces you to a new way of managing your funds. It gives you 24/7 access to all of your documentation through your own unique client portal (you can even download the app to your phone or tablet), customized alerts before payments are sent out and when anything has been updated in your portal, and a new and easy scheduling process that we ensure all parties agree upon before we distribute the first payment. Additionally all documentation in your client portal is in real-time; when a benchmark payment or reimbursement is made it is automatically reflected in your ledger which you can access at anytime.
SeedTrust® welcomes ALL clients and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex.
What is Escrow and why should I use a third party agency?
Escrow means that you’re using a “third party” to hold something of value, which helps to make your transaction safer. The job of an escrow service is simply to ensure that everybody sticks to what is outlined in the contract. Ideally, this would be a neutral third party, as they would have both parties best interests in mind.
Using a third party escrow agency like SeedTrust can eliminate the sometimes-uncomfortable conversations about money and payments that arise between the Intended Parents and Surrogate. By partnering with SmartVault, a secure and easy to access file management system, we have developed a unique process that eliminates the frustrating task of emailing accounting documents back and forth and allows you to spend more time on things that matter.
SeedTrust is owned and operated by an experienced Attorney and CPA and all money is held in a secure, strictly regulated IOLTA account. To date we have worked with Intended Parents, Surrogates, Egg Donors and Agencies in over a dozen countries.
