The Chicago Coalition for Family Building believes that everyone who wants to start a family deserves to.
Join us in supporting those struggling with infertility.
Together, we build families.
Infertility affects one in six.
However, not all infertility treatments are covered by insurance.
We believe building a family should be a human right, not a privilege. Our mission is to remove financial barriers that prevent creation of a family. As we work toward this goal, we take action to financially and emotionally support those struggling with infertility:
We provide fully funded IVF cycles generously donated by our Partner Practices
We provide financial grants for surrogacy and adoption
We promote LGBTQ+ family building
We provide pre-implantation genetic testing to prevent the transmission of genetic diseases
We are an educational resource for those with questions about infertility and coverage
Our team of professionals provide emotional support for patients and their families.
2023 grant applications are now open and close on June 30
