When You’re Ready to Do More
Join with other important people in a significant way
If you're ready to step up your personal commitment to fighting prematurity, we invite you to consider these three special options:
State Prematurity Funds
100% of the money goes to fight prematurity.
We accept gifts of $10,000 or more. Gifts will provide life-changing information to parents and health care professionals in your state and support life-saving research around the country.
NICU Family Support Project
100% of the money will be used to give comfort and support to families with babies cared for in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) near you.
We accept gifts of $10,000 or more, restricted exclusively to serving families in a time of crisis.
The project provides information and comfort to families during the NICU hospitalization of their newborn, during the transition home, and in the event of a newborn death.
Prematurity Research Initiative
100% of the money will be spent on prematurity-related research studies at leading medical institutions around the country and around the world.
We accept gifts of $25,000 or more, restricted exclusively to this purpose.
Let some of our nation's most gifted researchers focus their energy and skill on finding the causes of prematurity and ultimately preventing it. Experience the satisfaction of helping significantly to transform the world's body of knowledge about prematurity.
In each case, your gift can be made in a single payment or spread out over several years.
To learn more, call (800) 742-4657 or contact your local March of Dimes office. You can also e-mail your name, address, telephone number, and any questions to request more information.
