Applications for Connecticut and New York residents for the 2020 grant program will be accepted online at www.nesteggfoundation.org/apply starting on July 1st until July 31, 2020. The final grant recipients will be selected and notified this fall.

Nest Egg Foundation, Inc. a Connecticut-based non-profit organization founded to help those struggling with infertility will launch their 2020 grant application process on July1st through July 31st. Nest Egg Foundation is a non-profit charity granting financial assistance for infertility procedures and accepts applications from heterosexual, LGBTQ couples and singles.

Established four years ago, the organization has awarded 14 grants since its inception and has had seven babies born and four current pregnancies. The grants, valued at no more than $10,000, can be used to fund In Vitro Fertilization, including the IVF treatment cycle, embryo, egg or sperm cryopreservation, embryo testing and cycle medications at one of the two Connecticut Centers of Excellence – the Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (CARS) and Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT). Nest Egg Foundation has virtually no overhead as no one receives a salary, allowing all fundraising efforts to go directly into grants. The charity is led by an impressive Board of Directors comprised of reproductive specialists, attorneys, financial influencers, and women’s health advocates.
