Some save lives – others give life

Sperm donors are the hidden heroes behind many of today’s families

  • 30,000 - 60,000 babies are created using donor insemination per year.
  • 85% of recipients are single-parent-by-choice and same-sex couples.
  • 9% of men of reproductive age experience fertility issues.
    • 10% to 15% of men who are infertile suffer from low sperm counts.
    • 1% of all men suffer from azoospermia (no sperm at all).

Why choose to donate on Lucina?

Here are some of the reasons why Lucina donors have a better experience.

  • Choose your recipient(s)

    In many countries, the donors are not granted any rights. Gamete banks do not facilitate recipient selection.

  • Number of offspring

    Get a say in how many children you help create. Banks don't allow donors to choose how many families are formed with their genetics. 

  • Flexible engagement

    Gamete banks reveal donor identity after children turn 18, and for anonymous donors, never. Many donors are left wondering how their biological offspring are doing. Decide what kind of contact and updates you would like — and how often. 

  • Fairness + Diversity

    Gamete banks often screen based on socio-economic status (Ivy league degrees, achievements, awards) or physical traits (height, eye color). Gay and bisexual men are banned from donating by FDA regulations.


Protect yourself and your family

Donors may worry about legal or financial risks and responsibilities. States such as California have created legal processes to protect both donors and recipients. 

Lucina makes it easy to donate.

The path to become a donor has never been more rewarding.
