Learn about sperm donors at Fairfax Cryobank

Curious to learn about sperm donors available at Fairfax Cryobank?

Fairfax Cryobank donors live in the local communities surrounding our collection facilities in Fairfax, Virginia; Austin, Texas; Houston, Texas; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Twin Cities, Minnesota. We draw heavily from the colleges and graduate programs in those areas, as well as recruiting successful professionals to become sperm donors. Men who are interested in becoming applicants must be between 18-39 years of age, healthy and have no other significant risk factors. Of those who originally apply, less than 1% of applicants are accepted as sperm donors for Fairfax Cryobank, indicative of our intensely rigorous screening processes.

Sperm Donor Screening

Donor Categories

Fairfax Cryobank offers two categories of donors from which clients can choose; Non-ID and ID. All donors, regardless of category, are tested to the same high standards and have extensive medical and personal information available.

In addition, a large percentage of donors, both Non-ID and ID are pursuing or have completed graduate-level education. This includes Masters and PhD level degrees and students currently pursuing medical, dental, chiropractic, law, veterinary, optometry, and pharmacy degrees. Many donors have completed doctorate degrees already: MD, JD, DVM, VMD, DO, and PhD.


Non-ID donors wish to participate as sperm donors but have asked that Fairfax Cryobank not share identifying information with recipients or offspring. Likewise, many recipients choose Non-ID donor sperm with the expectation that Fairfax Cryobank will not disclose the donor’s identity. Non-ID donors provide detailed non-identifying information for inclusion in their medical and personal profiles. This supplemental information can be useful in aiding the selection of a donor. For more information about our guidelines, please review our Fairfax Cryobank Privacy Policy.


ID donors provide the same non-identifying, detailed level of information, testing, and screening, but they agree to allow Fairfax Cryobank to release identifying information, upon request, to your child once they reach 18, or older. Not all sperm banks define ID donors in the same way. Donors at some sperm banks have agreed to disclose their contact information to offspring at 18, or older, whereas other banks may mediate contact while keeping the donor’s identity private, or allow the donor to opt-out entirely. Not all ID programs are created equally.

These mergers provide a central registry for pregnancy reporting, along with a unified Client Services team ready to assist with inquiries.

CLI and PRS Donors

These donors come from our sister sperm banks, Cryogenic Laboratories, Inc (CLI), and Pacific Reproductive Services (PRS) and have the added advantage of very competitive pricing. These donors are also available as Non-ID and ID. Though priced more competitively, they have undergone the same intensive screening procedures as our Fairfax Cryobank donors.
