Get your calendars ready! We’ve got some really important dates coming up in 2023 that you won’t want to miss!

Family Grants

The inability to conceive can be very stressful and emotional for couples.  When hopeful parents learn the cost of treatments, many become discouraged in the dream of creating or expanding their family.


We established our Family Grant to help couples overcome the financial difficulties that come with infertility treatments.  The frequency and amount of grants is based on the availability of funds raised throughout the year.  Typically grants are awarded every 4 months, but may be more or less frequent.  Grant amounts vary and can be up to $30,000.

Our Family Grant covers up to $30,000 when funding permits for the IVF, surrogacy and the adoption process. Grants will be held for up to a year and will be distributed to the IVF/Surrogate/Adoption facilities chosen by the applicant. If payments out of the IVF/Surrogate/Adoption facilities need to be made, a bill/invoice can be submitted to Amelia Molloy’s Angels to be paid.

How are family grant recipients selected?

A committee composed of the Board of Directors and members of our advisory committee will review all applications received during the grant application cycle.  Each member of the committee has an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about the applicants to the rest of the committee.  An anonymous poll is taken to determine who the top candidates are.  Based on available funding, the Board of Directors will approve the quantity of grants to be awarded and the amount awarded in each grant.  

Who is eligible for a family grant?

Couples who are legal residents of the United States and are living in Kern County, have been diagnosed with infertility and who require infertility treatments or adoption are eligible for the grant application

In order for us to ensure that family grant funds are being used appropriately, we are not able to issue reimbursements for payments that you have already made.  Payments will be paid directly to a fertility clinic or adoption agency on your behalf.
