Why should I work for the March of Dimes?
The March of Dimes is a major nonprofit organization committed to improving the health of babies, by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. We have a rich legacy of success dating back to 1938 when our organization was founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt to defeat polio. Within 17 years, the Salk vaccine was developed with March of Dimes research funding. The March of Dimes became one of the few organizations to have defeated the threat it was established to fight. With 1,200 staff members committed to our mission in over 200 work locations throughout the United States, we engage with volunteers in communities across the country.
