Helping moms and babies in Georgia
Grants and awards are given to projects that address the urgent needs of moms and babies. Grants are generally awarded for one to three years and range from $10,000 to $25,000.
The March of Dimes Georgia Chapter uses gifts wisely. We award grants 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.
The Chapter Community Grants Fund for 2012 is approximately $200,000 with awards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 each.
The deadline for 2012 Letters of Intent was May 20, 2011. We are no longer accepting Applications for 2012 community grants.
