HOW TO DONATE

Infertility is a relentless beast. It takes over your mind, your body, your soul. Your emotions are a roller coaster and your body becomes this foreign entity you can’t recognize after a while. You’re poked and prodded, tested and re-tested to determine your diagnosis and treatment plans. The medications affect all aspects of your life. Your desire to have a baby becomes all-consuming. It’s heart wrenching and painful, month after month, year after year.
We wish we were being dramatic but the truth is, it is one of the worst experiences for people, both for individuals wishing to conceive and couples. Marriages are strained and finances are compromised. Reproductive technology is expensive. Many couples aren’t prepared to find out they need to spend $10,000+ to have a baby; a financial gamble that’s not guaranteed.
Every dollar we fundraise goes towards our recipient’s treatment aside from the latest cost we’ve incurred of creating this secure website. To date, we have raised over $25,000 with grants given to two different couples. One couple is currently pregnant with twins from their IVF treatment funded by the FFFS. The other couple haven’t started treatment yet.
It’s been an absolute honour and miracle to watch the twins grow within our recipient and we couldn’t have had a better outcome for our first grant. It’s what we pray for every time we award one. While we facilitate the application process and marketing the FFFS, it’s YOUR financial contribution that funds the treatments that actually create Life. It’s very special to be a part of this.
On top of fundraising, we’ve also opened up the fertility community to workshops, walks, events and the hard conversations. Friendships have been formed. Tears have been shed. Hugs have been held.
We want you to be a part of this. We want you in the discussion. We want you to join our community and support your loved ones struggling. We need you to understand the journey so you feel called to donate to this special cause. The FFFS is a revolutionary charity in Canada and we can only grow and fund more families with your help.
