As 2021 comes to a close, it’s important to recognize and celebrate those in the ART industry who have made countless dreams come true this year.
It is an incredible honor to have the continued trust of our agency partners. As a result of your mission to help people achieve their dreams of becoming parents, SeedTrust has been inspired to pay it forward with a donation of $5,000 to the Baby Quest Foundation.
Baby Quest Foundation provides financial assistance through fertility grants to those who cannot afford the high costs of procedures such as IVF (in vitro fertilization), gestational surrogacy, egg and sperm donation, egg freezing, and embryo donation.
This donation has enabled one more family to pursue their dreams of becoming parents, and it’s all thanks to the work our friends and colleagues in the ART industry have done throughout this year.
The SeedTrust, SeedCoach, and Orchid teams are sending our sincere appreciation and best wishes to you and your team this Holiday season. We look forward to working with you in 2022!
SeedTrust Agency Partner Grant Recipients
Who are Rachel and Jared?
Rachel and Jared reside in Georgia where they both serve as educators in a rural, Title 1 school system. Rachel is an academic coach of a middle school and Jared teaches high school science and is the boys’ head basketball coach. The high school sweethearts married in 2012 and have a fur baby, Charlie Brown, who is a chocolate Labrador retriever.
Rachel’s mother was a nurse who contracted Covid and passed away earlier this year. The couple has been trying to conceive for several years and has been told that they have less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant naturally with the diagnosis of unexplained infertility. They plan to begin IVF treatment within the next couple of months.
Rachel and Jared were originally selected to receive a Baby Quest grant, but their cycle was delayed due to some unfavorable test results. This meant Baby Quest lost the ability to give them a grant for medication because their cycle was postponed until next year. SeedTrust was delighted to be able to donate $5,000 to cover the medications that they need to proceed with their family-building journey!
