Your poop could save lives.
Welcome to Poop with Purpose, a stool donation program that’s committed to the safe collection of stool from healthy individuals. We see the potential in your stool—the healthy microbes that could be used to further research, develop promising new treatments and potentially cure serious medical conditions.
But we can’t do it without you.
As a stool donor, you could save lives and earn as much as $1,500 per month. Pooping has never been so rewarding.

Why donate? You can doo good.
What if the microbes in your poop held the key to a treatment for C. difficile? A cure for chronic hepatitis B? Or relief for children with autism who suffer from gastrointestinal symptoms? In short, what if your poop could make a difference in the lives of millions?
You’d think about pooping in a whole new way. Don’t flush a potential lifesaving cure down the toilet.
Sit down, get comfortable.
