Investing in Hawaii Programs
The Hawaii Chapter of the March of Dimes funds programs that address the unmet needs of moms and babies in our local community. The Hawaii Chapter Community Grants Program is designed to invest in programs in Hawaii that further the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
