Getting Egg Donation Right

For you as a donor, for you as a recipient and for your future child.

We specialise in finding, matching and looking after altruistic egg donors with one-to-one, anonymous donation. We are proud of the outstanding success rates with Altrui donors, from working in partnership with the best clinicians in this country.

Our whole ethos at Altrui is not just to get egg donation right for our donors and recipients but, most importantly, for any child, or children, that may be born as a result. Whilst we are fully focused on helping our recipients to get pregnant, we also look longer term to consider what is best for any future children, which is why we have taken such care in planning the way Altrui works and what makes us so different.

Hundreds of people have realised their hopes of starting, or completing, a family through us.

Using our extensive knowledge and understanding of all aspects of egg donation and IVF, we guide egg donors and recipients through the process, offering a very personal and unique service.  Our aim is to make the journey simple, safe and rewarding for the kind women who come forward to donate some of their eggs.

Our dedicated team is committed to making the egg donation process the very best experience for everyone. Your care is paramount at every step of the way, reflecting the Altrui ethos.

From start to end Altrui were fantastic. They always put my mind at ease. Being able to donate was amazing, if I could I would do it all again. I was kept informed every step of the way and always felt like I was doing the right thing donating. A big thank you to everyone for making donating possible and easy.

Nicola - Egg Donor

I decided to be a donor after having my son. He brought us so much joy and it broke my heart to think that some couples would miss out just because they needed some eggs. After much research I found Altrui, they have been amazing from start to finish.

Lucy - Egg Donor

Being a donor through Altrui was the best decision I ever made, I was treated absolutely wonderfully by all the staff at Altrui, and I would wholly recommend that anyone thinking of becoming a donor should choose Altrui.

Caroline - Egg Donor

Egg donation is one of the most amazing, fantastic experiences I have ever had. The joy you get from it is undescribable; it’s the most amazing thing a woman can do, by helping another couple to have a child. I can’t wait to donate again – best thing I’ve ever done.

Charlotte - Egg Donor

Thank you and the whole team for everything you have done for us and for taking the effort of looking for a matching donor and finding us this really, really special donor! What a strong and good personality she has – also considering her young age – actually I still can’t get my head round to what she has done for complete strangers!!?
