FFCG & Kindbody Grant
Birthed and led by women, Kindbody is a new kind of fertility provider driven by a mission and vision to revolutionize fertility care. With modern, welcoming, and accessible locations across the country, Kindbody believes in broadening the fertility conversation, increasing access to care, and improving the patient experience from beginning to end.
In an effort to make an impact within their own industry, Kindbody created a grant in collaboration with Fertility for Colored Girls, to help black, minority and underprivileged individuals access fertility and family-building services.
As a group, persons of African descent experience disparities with chronic conditions, access to care, preventive screenings, and mental health, with fertility and reproductive health being amongst these conditions.
Studies suggest black women are almost twice as likely to experience infertility as white women. Yet only about 8 percent of Black women between the ages of 25 and 44 seek medical help to get pregnant, compared to 15 percent of white women.
With this grant, Kindbody hopes to help those with historically disproportionate access to infertility care get the support they need, and to create more parity in reproductive health, fertility, and family-building care.
Finally, this grant is Kindbody's intent to stand in solidarity with the black community, and a pledge to do their part in the fight against systemic racism, and the fight toward societal equality.
For the second year, Kindbody is making a donation of $50,000 to go toward covering fertility cycles (IUI, IVF, and egg freezing) for three women who meet the eligibility requirements. Grantees will obtain services at a Kindbody clinic either in New York, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.
