Contact your local March of Dimes chapter to ask for a Request for Proposal (RFP). In 2009, chapters awarded a total of $6 million in community grants to support projects that address local perinatal needs. Proposals or Letters of Intent are usually due to the chapter in the late summer.
March of Dimes chapters support local projects aimed at helping women have healthier pregnancies. Funding from community grants enhances the availability and quality of health care and prevention services for women and their babies. For a list of specific programs funded in your state, please contact
your local March of Dimes chapter.
The March of Dimes has been conducting special events for more than 60 years. These activities - formal balls, signature chef auctions and dinners, motorcycle rides, golf tournaments and March for Babies - help the March of Dimes fund cutting-edge research and innovative programs to save babies. In 2007, more than $145 million was raised through hundreds of events held in communities across the country. With a wide variety to choose from, there is something for everyone!
