FFCG Gift of Hope Award is Back!

 

After being suspended in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fertility for Colored Girls (FFCG) Gift of Hope Award grant application is open!

 

What is the FFCG Gift of Hope Award?

 

The Fertility for Colored Girls (FFCG) Gift of Hope is an annual award that provides up to $10,000 to infertile families who qualify. This family building gift assists with the costs associated with infertility treatment or domestic adoption.

 

The gift is offered once per year, and the number of applications funded as well as the amount of funding depends on the success of the Fertility for Colored Girls fundraising efforts (i.e. the more we raise, the more we can give away).

 

Gift funds can be used to pay for the following:

  • Ιnfertility medications, supplies, and treatment from ANY reproductive endocrinology practice  of the recipient’s choice, including in-vitro fertilization, oocyte vitrification (egg freezing), embryo cryopreservation (embryo freezing) and third-party reproduction

  • Embryo adoption

  • Adoption fees from any licensed adoption agency

  • Attorney fees for adoption or third party reproductive cases

  • Travel fees (if adopting, or using an egg donor or gestational carrier outside of home state)

  • Other adoption, egg donation or gestational carrier-related expenses

Complete applications must be submitted by Friday June 18, 2021.
