March of Dimes

in Non-Profits

The March of Dimes is a national voluntary health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality. We fund programs of research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies. Today, the March of Dimes is one of the largest voluntary health agencies in the country. We have a 60-year track record of breakthroughs that save babies, including neonatal intensive care units, surfactant therapy, fetal surgery and folic acid education. Seventy-five percent of funds spent go to research and programs. The March of Dimes has launched a major new campaign to develop a coordinated national response to the tragic and growing problem of premature birth.
