Find a Sperm Donor: Locating High Quality Donors

Find an Anonymous Sperm Donor That Meets Your Needs and Our Strict Requirements

All of our anonymous sperm donors are recruited from local universities and colleges and are between the ages of 18 to 39. The majority of our sperm donors are undergraduate and graduate students, while some are professionals. Each of our sperm donors are voluntarily contributing their sperm to help infertile patients or single women have healthy children.

Our sperm donor requirements and testing are extremely strict and only the strongest candidates are accepted to the FCC sperm donor program. Less than 3% of the applicants that apply are accepted as contributing sperm donors.

FCC's Anonymous Sperm Donor Program

There are two different types of sperm donors. The first is an anonymous sperm donor in which a couple finds a sperm donor using a donor database.  They have no connection to the sperm donor and do not know their real identity. The second is a directed sperm donor program where a close friend or relative donates sperm for a couple. The anonymous sperm donor program at  the Fertility Center of California (FCC), Sperm Bank Inc. uses only the most exceptional quality of donor sperm for assisted reproductive procedures such as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), Intracervical Insemination (ICI) and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). All of our sperm donors have passed a rigorous screening process before being added to our sperm donor database. Learn more about our sperm bank costs and fees.

Sperm Donor Screening

Potential sperm donors possessing pleasant and acceptable physical features undergo extensive screening. This includes, but is not limited to, character and personality evaluation, genetic testing, fertility assessment, a physical examination and infectious disease testing. Genetic testing consists of a chromosomal analysis called karyotyping, which minimizes the risk of transmitting a known genetic disease. Once accepted into the sperm donor program, the health status of the applicant is continually re-assessed. Semen samples from screened sperm donors will be quarantined for a minimum of 180 days and released only after re-testing of the sperm donor for the required infectious disease screening.

Sperm Donor Tests

The following tests/screenings are performed initially on all sperm donors:

  • HIV I / II Antibody
  • HTLV I / II Antibody
  • RPR (Syphilis)
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • CMV (Cytomegalovirus) Antibody (IgM and IgG)
  • Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
  • Hepatitis B Core Antibody
  • Hepatitis C Viral Antibody
  • ALT (SGPT)
  • AST (SGOT)
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
  • Lipid Panel
  • Tay-Sachs
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Chromosome Analysis

Sperm Donor Vial Quality and Availability

Each vial from our sperm donors contains approximately 15 million motile sperm upon thawing and prior to washing. This number may decrease significantly following manipulation such as a sperm wash or centrifugation. Please be aware that the availability of semen vials from a particular sperm donor changes daily. Therefore, we highly recommend that you reserve and pre-pay for as many sperm donor vials as necessary to achieve a pregnancy. Find a sperm donor by searching our database.

We Keep You Informed

At the Fertility Center of California we report any significant changes or new developments in a sperm donor’s medical history immediately to your physician. In addition to the extensive medical history provided in the donor profile, we are currently gathering data on each donor’s developmental milestones. This information will be available to recipients and their physicians as well.
