Get involved at the collegiate level

At the campus level, students host major fundraising events for the March of Dimes; join leadership boards and committees; and start their own campus groups to support the mission to help all babies.

Collegiate national service partners
From step shows to campus March for Babies events, college student leaders from our national partners spread the word about our mission for an important audience. Our college supporters include: Alpha Phi Alpha, Circle K International, Delta Sigma Phi, Gamma Sigma Sigma, Phi Beta Lambda, Phi Beta Sigma, and Zeta Phi Beta.

Collegiate Council
Collegiate Councils are student groups that exist to conduct year-round activities to support the March of Dimes mission. These groups provide young people with meaningful learning experiences while building the volunteer force that will help the March of Dimes accomplish its goals today and lead the foundation into the future. Want to join or start a Collegiate Council on your campus? Let us know.
