Circle Surrogacy was founded on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to become a parent. Everything we do is rooted in this principle, which is why we are committed to providing assistance to communities of intended parents to help their dreams of parenthood a reality.
Founded by a gay dad through surrogacy, Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation has been helping the LGBTQ+ community become parents for 25 years. This community faces biological and social challenges that can make an expensive and complex process even more so. Because of that, the Circle team partners closely with LGBTQ+ organizations to dedicate their time and expertise to help build families within the community.
GPAP – the Gay Parenting Assistance Program – was created by Men Having Babies to make building a family more affordable for gay prospective parents that need financial assistance for their surrogacy journey. The program provides two tiers of financial assistance of varying degrees.
By the end of 2020, Circle Surrogacy will have donated over half a million dollars since 2018 to help intended parents grow their families through GPAP.
GPAP at Circle provides legal and escrow services at a discounted rate as well as other services, including pro bono surrogacy agency services.
