Become a Sperm Donor

Serving the Medical Community

Each year in the United States, more than 30,000 children are conceived through donor insemination, thanks to the contributions of generous men who are willing to donate their sperm.

While donors receive financial compensation, the ultimate reward for becoming a sperm donor is the knowledge that you are helping couples experience the joy of conceiving and having a child.

New England Cryogenic Center provides clients with high quality sperm from a diverse selection of donors. If you are interested in becoming a donor, please review the information below and in our FAQ section, and then request an application.

"Our experience with New England Cryogenic Center has been totally positive and every interaction has been highly professional."


New England Cryogenic Center seeks men of all ethnic backgrounds to become sperm donors. To become a donor, you must be:

  • Between the ages of 18 and 38
  • 5’8” to 6’6” in height
  • A college student or graduate, a technical or trade school student or graduate, or military
  • Able to commit to frequent on-site visits at our Newton Laboratory

Donors are expected to commit to a minimum of 12 months of donations. Months need not be consecutive – if you are a student, it is possible to temporarily suspend donations during school breaks.

Because New England Cryogenic Center guarantees to provide only sperm of high quality, we ask potential donors to submit to a thorough screening process. This involves a sperm analysis, blood & urine tests, and a physical exam. Donor applicants are also required to complete an application which includes personal and family health history.


Sperm donors receive $125 for each viable specimen. Donors are expected to produce a specimen at least once per week at our Newton, MA facility, but may produce up to every three days.


Participation in New England Cryogenic Center's sperm donor program, as well as all information provided to us, is held in the strictest confidence and communication with donors is conducted with ultimate discretion. New England Cryogenic Center maintains the anonymity of our donors, our clients and children born as a result of the use of donor inseminations. The identity of the donor is never provided to children born as a result of donations unless the donor explicitly gives his permission and participates in our ID Option Donor Program.
