Helping moms and babies in Florida
The March of Dimes Florida Chapter funds programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This includes providing financial support to research and education that will help moms before and during their pregnancies. It also includes working with local medical groups and organizations to improve prenatal care and newborn screening.
Chapter Grants and Community Awards are given to projects that address the urgent needs of moms and babies. Chapter Grants are generally awarded for one to three years and range from $25,000 to $100,000. Community Awards are generally awarded for one year up to $3,000.
The March of Dimes Florida Chapter uses gifts wisely. We award grants based on a number of criteria, including the group or organization’s ability to accomplish its goals, as well as the potential impact a project will have in helping us prevent premature births, birth defects and infant mortality.
The goal of the Community Awards program is to identify and fund community-based programs addressing the health concerns of pregnant women and infants in Florida.
Grants are one way the March of Dimes pursues its mission of preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. The goal of the community awards program is to identify and fund community-based programs addressing the health concerns of pregnant women and infants in Florida. They must also fall under our 2014 funding priorities.
Community Awards can be requested for amounts up to $3,000 and can support activities such as: providing or enhancing preconception health/interconception education and/or services; or providing or enhancing risk reduction education and/or services. Community Awards may not be used to support the purchase of equipment or furniture, individual tuition or conference fees, dues or membership fees, employee salary, or programs requiring long-term March of Dimes funding.
