Conceiving a baby is not always as easy as we think it should be. For those facing the challenges of infertility, in vitro fertilization (also referred to IVF) can be an incredible option to grow your family. Unfortunately it is an expensive process, and one that is not always covered by insurance. With Deposit a Gift you can alleviate the financial strain by creating a personal donation site to help raise money for your IVF procedure.
Money shouldn’t be the barrier to achieving your dream of parenthood. If you are willing to be open with your friends and family about the issues you are facing, you can ask for the support of those who love you to help make your IVF journey possible. Think of it like your baby registry before the baby. Actually being able to have the baby is much more important than monogrammed towels and fancy bottle warmers.

With Deposit a Gift you can customize your IVF fundraising site so that it’s truly a reflection of you and what you are trying to accomplish. You can set it up in the format of a fund or use our Gift List tool to break down the different uses of funds so that your supporters can contribute to different areas of need. This also helps people unfamiliar with the IVF process understand what you are going through. Most aren’t familiar with how intricate, complicated, time consuming and stressful it can be.
Once you’ve got your site setup, the key is marketing it to the max to make people aware of what you are going through and incite them to contribute. This is the hardest part because infertility is so personal, but the more you put it out there and remind people that you are still on the journey, the better chances you have of achieving your donation goal. We hope our platform will help ease some stress so you can focus on this important next step in your life.
