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.
