The Jewish Fertility Foundation has partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-Magee Women’s Center for Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology to provide greater access for people seeking fertility treatment in the Pittsburgh area.

As part of the partnership, “JFF-Pittsburgh clients who are awarded a fertility grant will now have access to a helpful benefit: a 20% discount on clinic services at UPMC,” according to JFF officials.

JFF will continue to offer its established financial assistance for intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization treatments, with fertility grants of up to $10,000 available to eligible applicants, according to a news release.

“We are thrilled to formalize our partnership with UPMC, a respected institution known for its excellence in healthcare,” JFF Founder and CEO Elana Frank said in a prepared statement.

“This collaboration represents a significant milestone in our mission to provide holistic support to individuals and families facing fertility challenges. By combining financial assistance with world-class medical care, along with our free emotional support and educational programming, we aim to help hopeful parents on their journey to parenthood.”

The Jewish Fertility Foundation, which has operated in Pittsburgh since 2022, is a beneficiary organization of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. Frank created the nonprofit organization in 2015 after experiencing her own infertility journey. JFF provides financial assistance, educational awareness and emotional support to those struggling to build families.

“We are honored to partner with the Jewish Fertility Foundation in this important endeavor,” said Dr. Pamela Parker, a reproductive endocrinologist at UPMC and a member of JFF’s National Medical Advisory Council. “At UPMC, we understand the profound impact that fertility challenges can have on individuals and families, and we are committed to providing compassionate, personalized care to every patient who walks through our doors. By joining forces with JFF, we can further expand access to fertility treatments and support services, ultimately helping more people realize their dreams of becoming parents.” PJC
