    Helping moms and babies in California

    The March of Dimes California Chapter funds programs that address the health concerns of pregnant women, moms and babies. Our grants program has two components: Community Grants and Community Awards.  Please scroll down the page for Community Award information.  

    To be eligible for any type of grant funding from the California Chapter, your agency must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3) or for-profit organization or government agency providing services in California.  The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals.

    Acrobat Reader is required to view and download files on this page.   If you do not have this program, you can download it for free at adobe.com (search for 'Reader'.)

    Community Grants can be awarded for one to three years and range from $10,000 to $50,000 per project year.  

    We are not currently accepting applications for Community Grants, but anticipate releasing an RFP for 2015 Community Grants in the second quarter of 2014.

    Check back for more information or email us to be added to our grant funding notification email list.

    Community Awards are designed for small-scale projects. Awards range from $500 to $3,000. Funding is distributed by geographical area.  

    Applications for 2014 Community Awards are now open!

    Guidelines and application materials for 2014 Community Awards can be downloaded by using the links on this page.   The California Chapter's Community Award fund for 2014 is $34,000.  Awards will range from $500 to $3,000.

    Please review the application guidelines carefully before submitting your application.  To be considered for funding, applications must contain all requested information.  Projects which do not meet at least one of the Funding Priority Areas will not be considered for funding.  

    Please allow 6-8 weeks for application review.

    Community Award applications can be submitted on an ongoing basis throughout 2014 until all funds are expended.  Funding is distributed by geographical area; a list of areas for which funding is no longer available will be posted on this page as awards are made.
