[ANON POST] Bio Child of Non-Jewish Woman + Jewish Sperm Donor = Jewish?

EDIT BY MOD: When I posted this, I initially misread the question and put that the bio mom was Jewish in the subject line. Corrected now. On to the post!

Setting is modern-day US.

I've been searching all sorts of variations on ''Reform Judaism sperm donor," but I haven't come up with an answer to this. If a lesbian couple has kids through artificial insemination, and the bio mom isn't Jewish but the sperm donor is (as is the non-bio mom), would Reform Jews consider the kids Jewish? Obviously no one else would unless they underwent conversion, but I haven't been able to find if a Jewish sperm donor counts as a Jewish father for Reform Judaism.
