    Helping moms and babies in Nevada

    The March of Dimes Nevada Chapter funds programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This includes providing financial support to local organizations that educate moms before and during their pregnancies on how to have a healthy pregnancy. It also includes working with local medical groups and organizations to improve prenatal care and newborn screening.

    Grants and awards are given to projects that address the urgent needs of moms and babies. Grants are generally awarded for one year and range from $5,000 to $10,000.  Community awards range from $500 to $3,000.  Funds must be used to support or expand existing programs.  Deadline for electronic applications, along with four (4) hardcopies is 12:00 pm on Friday, February 19, 2016.

    In order to be eligible to receive a March of Dimes chapter grant, the applicant must provide services in Nevada.  The applicant organization must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3) or for profit organization or government agency. The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals.

    The March of Dimes Nevada Chapter uses gifts wisely. The Grant Subcommittee reviews and awards 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 March of Dimes Nevada Chapter has one goal: to help babies in our community start life in the healthiest way possible. Through education and intervention, we help moms-to-be learn how to take care of themselves before, during and after their pregnancy.
