What is NIAW?
National Infertility Awareness Week® (“NIAW”) is a movement that began in 1989. The goal of NIAW is to raise awareness about the disease of infertility and encourage the public to understand their reproductive health. In 2010, National Infertility Awareness Week became a federally recognized health observance by the Department of Health and Human Services.
How does Fertility Within Reach’s NIAW Campaign work?
We are kicking off a week long Board of Directors campaign to help each Board member share their stories of what motivates them to give back to the infertility community through their dedication to Fertility Within Reach, which not only raises awareness about infertility but also helps to raise funds specifically to help those in need now.
How does the online campaign work?
Scroll through the listed opportunities to learn more about how you can support FWR. You will find projects at different amounts that you can fund, or you can give at any level.
Where does my money go?
Fertility Within Reach is a national non-profit that offers educational programs and assistance to couples seeking to build their family via fertility treatment. Your donation will go directly towards implementing our goals for the benefit of these couples.
Why participate?
Given that 1 out of 6 couples are diagnosed with infertility, odds are that a loved one or a close friend has been impacted by this disease. This is your chance to support them by helping the entire infertility community. You will make a difference for those impacted now and in the future.

National Infertility Awareness Week®

One of life’s most devastating realizations is the inability to become pregnant.  Infertility is a disease and wreaks havoc on millions and millions of couples across the U.S. The second most devastating realization comes after this diagnosis: coming to terms with the lack of support and inconsistent information when trying to seek medical care. Most patients face the epic battle of fighting their insurance company, employer and medical team to access the healthcare needed to treat this disease. Fertility Within Reach provides these couples with advice, tools and support to help build their family.

We help one couple at a time.  During National Infertility Awareness Week® we are asking your support to help fund one or more initiatives to help make a difference to a family in need.

“I will never forget you. You are a Godsend. The insurance company covered all of my costs for the cycle in dispute from last year.” -Tasha L. in Queens, NY

About Fertility Within Reach

Guided by the needs of individuals and aligning with providers we endeavor to protect and further access to family building benefits. We believe that when armed with information and best-practice strategies, individuals are able to ensure their family-building needs are met and reproductive health is preserved.

FWR_OrgPromoImage_NIAWcampaignFertility Within Reach has a vision of a time when infertility is recognized nationwide as a standard medical condition which requires insurance coverage for diagnosis and treatment. We want to make this vision a reality.

Davina Fankhauser is Fertility Within Reach’s Chief Advocate and Founder. Davina is driven to teach others how to advocate for themselves in the hope that they will be spared the pain and heartache known to accompany infertility, especially when denied access to timely and appropriate treatment.

“I thought Kitty was the most tenacious advocate I had ever known, until I met Davina.”
-Governor Michael Dukakis
