We believe that everyone should have equal access to high quality fertility care, but also recognize that for many, affording treatment can be difficult.
Which is why Pollin is proud to partner with the The Modern Miracle Foundation, a registered Canadian charity that provides grants to individuals and families struggling to afford fertility treatments, helping ease their financial stress and making fertility treatments more accessible for them.
Together, we have created the Pollin x Modern Miracle IVF Grant Fund with the goal of providing up to 50, $4500 IVF fertility grants per year to Pollin patients who qualify.
A shared goal of annual fundraising initiatives to turn generous donations into grants for people in need.
The $4500 grant is a gift, repayment is not necessary
There is a $50 application fee (treated as a donation) to ensure the applicant is committed
The funding will be provided by Modern Miracle to Pollin, not to the recipient directly
The grant must be used within 6 months of application approval date and only apply to IVF treatment
The grant will not apply to any OFP funded cycles
We utilize a set of criteria to ensure a fair and objective selection process.
Applicant and co-applicant (If applicable) must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, be a current resident of Ontario & have a valid OHIP card
Probability of treatment success
Annual household income level (<150K)

The grant can be used to offset the cost of one IVF treatment cycle, excluding the cost of medications
Expenses not covered by the grant include: medications, storage fees, advanced testing fees.
Yes, grants must be applied to your invoice and used within 6 months of your application approval date.
Each application is reviewed by members of the Modern Miracle team, including Medical Advisors. We verify the information provided in the application form as well as the Medical Evaluation signed by your physician.
Personal information in the Medical Evaluation form is redacted to eliminate bias and doctors will never review and opine on their own patients.
There are many considerations that go into the applicant selection process. For example, we review financial need as well as the prognosis provided by your doctor. All of these considerations help us with the difficult decision of who is selected for a grant.
While we aim to review applications as quickly as possible, it may take up to 8 weeks to complete the review.
Once the application review is completed, you will be contacted via email as to the outcome of your application.
You can re-apply but we suggest only re-applying if there has been a material change in your application. For example, if your application is rejected due to medical prognosis, we recommend applying if there has been a material change to your treatment plan (eg. from using own egg/sperm to using donor).
If you’re unsure if you should re-apply, reach out to the team at email@example.com and they can provide guidance.
These grants are one-time grants. As such, you cannot re-apply after successfully receiving a grant from the Pollin x Modern Miracle IVF Grant fund.
Pollin and The Modern Miracle Foundation have a shared commitment to hold annual fundraising events to raise funding for grants and awareness about the importance of all Canadians having equitable access to fertility treatments.
