The Donor Search Resource Guide
- Personalized Donor Questionnaire
There’s an art to interviewing donors. Lin knows, because she perfected it while reviewing 6,000 potential donor profiles. This questionnaire template helps you hone in on the right donor candidate with greater accuracy. Does he want to be involved? So how many children has he already helped create? Will his genetic material be available for future siblings? These are all questions you need to ask and many more.
- Sample Legal Documents
You would be surprised, the laws you would think that protect your rights actually may not exist. There are no uniform laws governing parental rights and those of sperm donors. Fertility truly is the unregulated Wild West. However, if you take the time to establish a written, legal agreement with your known donor, it will help prevent disputes in the future. Here’s everything you need to know in non-lawyer speak.
- Budget Worksheet
We won’t lie. It costs a lot of money to find, interview and select a known sperm donor. In comparison to selecting an anonymous donor already in the a cryobank’s database, you actually can save up to 77% choosing a willing to be known donor and you won’t have to wait until your child reaches the age of 18 to know the donor’s identify. You’ll have an opportunity to bank more vials of sperm ensuring you can use the same donor for all pregnancies. This worksheet will help you prepare financially, so you’re not hit with any surprises. Nothing could be more frustrating than to begin the process but then have to halt due to shortage of funds.
- Donor Requirement Sheet
This convenient resource will help you hone in on and articulate your requirements for your donor such as height, heritage, education, etc. Chances are, you might be nervous when you first meet your donor so a handy list of questions will serve as a helpful reminder.

So how do you interact with a potential sperm donor. Nope, Miss Manners hasn’t covered that in her etiquette books. You’ll benefit from these suggestions for smoother interactions and a process that will put all participants at ease. You’ll also receive questions you should ask your donor and how to set expectations.
