Introducing The Willow Grant

After struggling with recurrent pregnancy loss, Ashley and Carlos Rodón were blessed with their daughter Willow.  They created The Willow Grant to help others who are experiencing recurrent loss.

The Ryder Grant

The Ryder Grant is named in honor of our son, Ryder, who was conceived via IVF with egg donation. As a couple, we were very fortunate to have had the financial support of our family through many difficult rounds of infertility treatment. We wish that no one had to choose between finances and having a family. We know the emotional weight of infertility is overwhelming in itself. We feel incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to give back to the infertility community by offering this grant through The Nest Egg Foundation. In doing so, it is also our hope to bring the subject of egg donation to light, as it is not often openly discussed.

David OlmstedThe Ryder Grant in Loving Memory of David Olmsted

The Ryder Grant for 2024 is offered in loving tribute to David Olmsted, Ryder’s beloved grandpa, who left us far too soon. This year’s grant is made possible through the generous donations of David’s friends and family.  Of special mention is a large contribution made in his memory by his sister, Barbara Aaker, and her family.  We also sadly lost Barbara this past December.  Our family misses them both so dearly. We honor both of their lives through the gift of hope.
