Supporting recipients, donors, and families through every step of the process

Why choose TSBC?

The Sperm Bank of California is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing ethical family building options to our diverse community. We have an unwavering commitment to the well-being of parents, children, and donors.

The TSBC difference

* Prompt reporting of pregnancies and pregnancy outcomes allows us to maintain our ten-family limit. Unreported pregnancies, delayed reporting, and vials or embryos stored at clinics without our knowledge, can lead to a donor having more than 10 families.


“I can’t imagine any of the other banks we considered would have put this much thought, support, honesty, and understanding into helping us.”

– Meghan
