This year has been a difficult one for many of us. We’d like to take a moment to acknowledge those in the ART industry that have continued to make a positive impact, in spite of the challenges we’ve all faced.
As we reflect on the past year, SeedTrust is incredibly grateful for the trust our agency partners place in us. Your mission to help build families has enabled us to “pay it forward” in a most meaningful way. This holiday season, we have made a $5,000 donation to the Baby Quest Foundation on behalf of our esteemed clients.
Baby Quest Foundation provides financial assistance through fertility grants to those who cannot afford the high costs of procedures such as IVF, surrogacy, egg and sperm donation, egg freezing, and embryo donation. As a “volunteer” non-profit paying no salaries, Baby Quest passes along a high percentage of donated funds to grant recipients.
We have always been inspired by our agency partners’ dedication to building families. Thanks to the work you and your team have done throughout this year, the SeedTrust Agency Partner grant will enable one more family to come to life.
Thank you for your commitment to helping build families! We look forward to providing our continued support in the upcoming year!

Who are Caitlin and Jason?
Cancer was the club I never asked to join. It originated as lymph node chains in my neck and chest but aggressively invaded and metastasized, seemingly overnight. This wasn’t supposed to happen to young, otherwise healthy newlyweds. I failed fertility preservation via IVF (due to premature ovarian failure secondary to high-dose chemotherapy) while preparing to undergo a stem cell transplant. Those were hard emotions to keep in check, even for this Nurse! We learned to accept that I’d never become a mother biologically during one of the most physically and mentally demanding challenges of my life. However, we never imagined failing fertility with an egg donor, too. In the story that we told ourselves about how our lives would unfold, we hadn’t left room for the possibility that we would need this type of assistance. The greatest gift to be given is that of transformation. Our hearts and souls are now tied together in a lasting bond; we’re eager to embrace another chance at our dream of parenthood. From the essence of our beings, thank you, Baby Quest and SeedTrust Escrow!
