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 the state of Minnesota. Community Awards can be made to support activities such as: purchase and distribution of March of Dimes health education materials, implementation of March of Dimes community programs (e.g. Stork's Nest® and Comenzando bien®), or a conference for health professionals.
Community Awards may not be used to support equipment or furniture, individual tuition or conference fees, dues or membership fees, employee salary or programs requiring long-term March of Dimes funding.
Available Funding and Eligibility
Awards may be granted up to $2,500. The applicant must provide services in Minnesota. For larger scale projects, contact the Minnesota Chapter to learn more about how to apply for a chapter grant. In order to be eligible to receive a March of Dimes community award, an organization must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3) or for profit organization or government agency.
The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals. Applicants must disclose any conflict of interest due to representation by their organization on the chapter’s Program Services Committee or the Chapter or Division Board of Directors.See also: Apply for a Community Award(PDF,0.00kb)
