On Giving Back


Managing Director Nathan Chan and Community Engagement Coordinator Alix Thomas talk about Proud Fertility’s involvement and the importance of giving back to the community.

Giving Back to the Community

While most companies allocate a share of their ‘profits’, Proud Fertility is proud to give back a share of our revenues back to the community. We are committed to allocating a minimum of FIVE PERCENT OF OUR REVENUES back to our community through donations to registered charities.

Among our causes that we support are: the GLBTIPQ communities, disability and youth-at-risk communities, communities who empower and advocate for women, and organizations committed to eliminating homelessness.

Company resources are allocated to all Proud Fertility staff to contribute to their local communities through relevant and meaningful volunteer experience.

Proud Fertility makes every effort possible to contribute through donations to organizations across Canada. We welcome your suggestions by email (info@proudfertility.com) on where Proud Fertility can help out and we will carefully consider them holistically given our budget and how it aligns with our values and philosophy.

Disability in the Community

Infertility as a Disability


Managing Director Nathan Chan and Client Care Advisor (Volunteer) Kim Gerritsen speak candidly about infertility as a disability and how it is possible to find pride in your infertility as there are alternative ways to fulfill your family dreams through surrogacy and egg donation. Both Nathan and Kim identify with various disabilities, including the inability to have children naturally. Proud Fertility views disability as a socially constructed variable through a critical theory framework.
