Helping moms and babies in California
The March of Dimes California Chapter funds programs that address the unmet needs of moms and babies. Our grants program has two components: Community Grants and Community Awards.
To be eligible for any type of grant funding from the California Chapter, your agency must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3) or for-profit organization or government agency providing services in California. The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals.
Community Grants can be awarded for one to three years and range from $10,000 to $50,000 per project year.
Please note that we are not currently accepting applications for Community Grants.
Community Awards are designed for local, small-scale projects. Awards range from $500 to $3,000. Funding is distributed by geographical area.
Applications for 2012 Community Awards are now open!Applications will be accepted until our limited funding is depleted. Click on the links below to download application guidelines and supporting documents.

The California Chapter awards grant funding 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.
