Every year, more than half a million babies are born too soon, 8,000 of them right here in Colorado. With your help, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong.
Through programs and services in communities across Colorado, we promote healthy pregnancies and babies, and work to prevent premature birth and birth defects. We educate moms and support families in need.
By raising funds, donating your talents or joining us in a local event, you make a positive difference in the health of babies and families in neighborhoods like yours. Learn how you can help and get involved today.
The Colorado Chapter has two types of opportunities for community health organizations that serve pregnant women:
Prenatal Education: Becoming a Mom/Comenzando bien® is a prenatal education course, developed by the March of Dimes and offered in group settings across Colorado.
Prenatal Care: March of Dimes provides grants organizations that offer CenteringPregnancy®, an evidence-based, group model of prenatal care that has proven success in helping women have healthy pregnancies.
Grants are usually for about $10,000 for the next calendar year. For more information, please contact Scott Matthews at 303.305.1218 or by email.
