How Much Does It Cost?
The processing fee for donor milk is $4.50 per ounce. A lot of science, screening, and people-power goes into every ounce of donated breast milk before it becomes vital nutrition for the most vulnerable babies.
These are the many necessary costs incurred to make each ounce safe and nourishing:
— Community Outreach
— Lab Equipment
— Milk Donor Screening
— Milk Testing
— Rent & Utilities
— Shipping & Tracking
— Staffing & Training
Is Financial Assistance Available?
Our Community Care program, Evie’s Fund, can help families with special medical or financial circumstances. If you have a prescription, call us at (503) 469-0955 (toll-free (800) 204-4444) and our staff will assist you with the application.
Who Is Eligible For Donor Milk?
Babies less than a year old with a valid prescription may receive milk based on availability. In the event of a milk shortage, babies less than one month old or who have critical medical conditions will be served first.
If availability is low, we may ask to see documentation from your child’s care provider showing the medical necessity for donor milk.
Donor milk is generally not available for long-term use. It is meant to be used as a resource to help you transition to your permanent feeding plan. Think of it as a bridge between your short-term needs of today and your long-term plans for tomorrow.
