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.

I spent 6 months carefully researching different options of where to find an egg donor before I chose Altrui. What I hoped for, but didn’t expect, was that Altrui would find me such a good match. On reading my donor’s details I was shocked to read about someone who shared the same core values as me, never mind that she looked like me. I am overwhelmed that a stranger is helping me to have a family.

I’m so happy that I chose to become a donor with Altrui, they are easily the best company to help and support you along the way. 24/7 guidance and support, never felt alone and got given plenty of information about the process. Thank you so much for all you guys have done supporting me along this amazing journey.

Simone - Egg Donor

Altrui are so kind, nice, will always be on the end of the phone and are there if you have any question at all. I wouldn’t choose any other organisation, these are definitely the best. Even so committed that Alison came down from Yorkshire to look after me after the procedure when none of my friends or family could. You are in safe hands with them.

Alice - Egg Donor

I had an amazing experience with Altrui! I was over the moon with the support and care they provided, ensuring I felt confident at every step. They truly care about the donors, ensuring your best interests always.

They’re very professional and clearly have a lot of experience – my questions and concerns were minimal as everything was so well explained.

Kirsty - Egg Donor

When you think about the chance you’re giving someone to have a baby it makes the small amount of hassle totally worth it. And you get to find out lots about yourself and your own fertility in the process! The staff at Altrui and my clinic were lovely and supportive, they really care about making your experience as easy as possible
