Nest Egg Foundation Inc. Offers 2016 Grants to Assist Those with Infertility
Date:6/16/2016

Nest Egg Foundation, a new, Connecticut-based non-profit organization founded to help those struggling with infertility, will launch their 2016 grant program. Nest Egg Foundation will offer financial grant assistance for in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment to eligible individuals and couples who have been unable to start their families due to financial need. Applications for the 2016 grant program will be accepted online at http://www.nesteggfoundation.org/apply until July 31, 2016. The final grant recipient will be selected and notified this summer.

Nest Egg Foundation provides grants of financial assistance. In order to be eligible for a grant, applicants must be legal and permanent residents of the US, reside in Connecticut, and must have received a doctor’s diagnosis of primary infertility, among other criteria. Applicants must have an annual income of less than $85,000 if single or $135,000 if married or in a domestic partnership. The number of grants awarded is dependent on review and selection by an independent evaluation panel and fundraising. One grant will be offered during the 2016 summer season. Grants can be used to cover certain expenses associated with IVF that the applicant's’ medical insurance company will not cover. This can include an IVF treatment cycle, embryo, egg, or sperm cryopreservation, embryo testing and cycle medications. Grants can be used for treatment at two fertility centers in Connecticut, Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (CARS) and Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT). The grant will cover up to $10,000 of treatment.

Nest Egg Foundation is a collaborative effort between medical and financial professionals, attorneys and others who care about building families and want to help those who cannot afford fertility treatments.

“It is a joy to be putting our resources – our time, expertise and money – to help hard working people bring their family dreams to fruition,” explains Dana Gilland, President of the Board of Directors for Nest Egg Foundation.

“We know there are men and women who will end their journey to have their families, simply because of money...people who would make wonderful parents, but whose hands are tied because of financial constraints. That’s simply hard to swallow and we don’t want that to be the end of the story for any family,” says Nest Egg Foundation Board Member Mark Leondires, MD who is also the Medical Director for Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT).

Created in 2015, Nest Egg Foundation began with generous support and services donated by the following: Harold Levy, The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services, Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut, Miggs Burroughs, CarbonFoot Medical, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP, Teplitzky & Company, PC, and Information Technology Group.
